Frozen Pride

My Colorado roots have always made me approach West Coast winters with a certain pride. Ha! Look at all these silly Angelenos, walking around in their parkas and snow hats. My boogers used to freeze on the way to school, people! This isn’t real winter! This isn’t cold! I would love telling stories about having […]

Giarry

This past summer, I met up with my brother in Southeast Asia to do some traveling.  We spent time in Luang Prabang, Laos, one of the poorest places on Earth.  Aside from the best egg sandwiches you’ll ever taste, Laos is also home to some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet.  This is from […]

  Whenever I go back home, I have a habit of going through books and journals and other random junk in my old childhood room.  The last time I was there, I came across my East High School Senior Yearbook.  Being the vain actor that I am (ask my roommates how many times they’ve had […]

Savlanout

A year and a half after graduating from college, I was back in the Mile High City for the winter holidays.  I had spent the previous year living in Los Angeles, rediscovering a latent love for the craft of acting.  The hardest part about starting a life of acting is going home.  I had nothing […]
