I'm a former cook/chef/server (many years before it was exploited & glamorized) at Southern California restaurants It is true that "love" has a lot to do if the food is good or not. If you see a bored/stressed kitchen atmosphere, best to eat somewhere else. If you see a couple of drunk Mexicans having fun drinking and laughing in the kitchen, why didn't you come in and say, "Hi"?
Went to LACC for film and was 1 of 3 nominees to get short film screened for public viewing.
I play bass, geetar and love my DR-5 drum sequencer.
I'm in a band called "Insert" we got some play on KXLU and even hosted a show a couple times.
Have written many short stories laying around my apartment but am now trying to get my stories exposed to others.
Been a skateboarder for like 30 years now growing up in the South Bay of Los Angeles.
Was a veg-head for 4 years but would eat meat if I killed it myself such as fishing, although I also included dumpster diving for various meats which is actually how I stopped being a veg-head because I was broke and eating outta trash cans...
I do enjoy filming shorts but it's a pain to get everyone together to have fun that will be DOCUMENTED for all too see! I just don't get why people gotta have so much drama involved with having fun, pick up a camera and SHOOT! Hence why I'm more into writing at this moment since the only peeps I have to deal with are in my head although they too can get distracting.
I believe in writing and film that we as creators have to push the envelope that "Hollywood" won't. I love foreign films because they are usually uncensored and think about the art before the money$.
I'm not here to say I'm a great writer by any means, I just want to get people to read my interpretations of how I see life in reality/unreality and give me a sense of actually belonging here.
Thanks for reading, I may update this from time to time, who knows. Contact me any time, good or bad criticism will only make me try harder and to be more unique.
Time for a drink, salud!

A poem of sorts. If you haven't experienced this feeling at work or in life I can't wait until you do. Nothing really matters.

Humor and hell, usually a good combo and this is one of those. Good, fast read with a really interesting take at the end.
