Class of 2010


Hello Family and Friends,

While in CA, I have been hitting the ground hard making contacts and singing at various places like Simply Thai in East Hollywood, The Novel Cafe in Pasadena, The Dresden Lounge in East Hollywood, and The Guitar Merchant in Copanga Park just to name a few- and all the while, going out on many auditions. 

As far as my acting goes, last week I just finished filming on a Featurette art film, as the lead role of Maurice (Momo) in Ocean of Memories - A story of the Hollywood struggle set against the backdrop of its addiction/recovery scene- a fictional narrative. Cast: Von Cleve Lewis, Michael Goetz, Jason Diaz, Reesa Ishiyama, Elise Jade D'Orazio, Ronja Koepke, Bodhi LaVey, Cathy Dobyns, Ilka Urbach, Natalia Schroeder, Max Bird-Ridnell, Rob R. Ryel, Tom Gillis, Steven Jennings.

Check it out!

The film runs about 40mins and can be viewed at the following link-Ocean of Memories

It does contain a little mature content, but is in all ways tasteful and artistic. Also, my song "All By Myself" which can be found on my Radio Surfing album on Itunes was used as the main theme of the movie.

In more recent news-

I will be home for the holiday season in 2012. Here is a list of my NC gigs, thus far. I still have dates open for Weddings, Christmas parties, etc.- if interested. I fly back to L.A. in early January to perform some already booked gigs. Be sure to come out and see me before I leave the East coast again.

A big special thanks to John Van Dyke for holding down the fort at Annabelle's while I was away, as he will continue to do so in January.
