Seminole Casino Hollywood

Beer in one hand, slot machine pull in the other… it was a good day on set for the Seminole Casino Hollywood commercial!  OK, you caught me… there is no pull or lever on this slot machine… it’s one of those fancy new digital ones.  But still, it was fun. The funny thing about this…

Short Film – Innuendo

A few weeks ago, I was called for an interview for a short film titled “Innuendo”.  I hadn’t gone to the original audition because I didn’t know about it.  A long story short, they didn’t find the person they wanted, so they happened to hear of me via fellow actors Cristina Figarola and Vivi Pineda.  After speaking with…

Happy 234th Birthday, America!

Today we pay tribute to the 234th Independence Day of our country.  What a 234 years it’s been!  I felt compelled to write in my blog today… specially since my blog has been abandoned for a few months.  I’ve been so busy that I haven’t made time to straighten out my thoughts for my blog. …

Local Car Commercial

I was in local car dealership commercial recently.  I was the “manager” in charge of financing.  It was an easy commercial… kinda cheesy… you know, the kind where everyone is overtly happy for no reason and smiling really big.  Well, that was this gig! What’s funny is what happens between takes between the actors… we…

A Day on Set and The Food Truck

Lots of my friends ask me what it’s like to work on a set.  And while each set can be different because of the crew, type of project, weather conditions, or the director, the general answer is this: It’s a lot of fun.  It’s a lot of “hurry and wait”.  It’s productive.  And… It’s yummy!…

Book Cover

So my wife just texts me and writes “go to Amazon.com and search for ‘For Your Heart Only’”.  I thought this was odd, but I immediately type in the address and what do I find… Our picture on a book cover!  OMG! Her friend saw it as he was walking by a Barnes & Noble,…

Audition for ABC Pilot in NY!

So I’ve been in New York for about a month and do I feel overwhelmed with the stuff I gotta do.  I want to learn accents, take monologue classes, do more classes on scene prep and cold reading… and of course, take as many workshops that I can with casting directors. Sigh… catch my breath. …

The Big Apple

I have taken another step towards following my goals… my wife and I have come to New York for several months to audition, find agents, take classes and generally try our luck. I’ve been here for a few weeks now, and I’m really liking it.  I didn’t think I would enjoy it as much as…

Belgium Chocolate Commercial

What does belgium chocolate have to do with construction men?  Absolutely nothing!  But I was chosen to be one of the construction men for a chocolate commercial where we never once saw a chocolate.  No taste test or even gawking at someone eating a chocolate.  But it was a great shoot.  I got to perform…

He’s Soon To Be Famous…

Hello friends… it’s been several weeks since I’ve made the time to update my website.  Things are busy (in a good way) with preparations for New York, acting workshops/classes and with my web design business that supports my acting (read: crack) habit!    =) I wanted to share an interview of a friend of mine named…

Miami.com Commercial

Not a bad day’s work!…  I was selected to be on a commercial for Miami.com, which is owned by a former employer of mine from a past life, The Miami Herald. For the commercial, there were two scenes.  The first was of friends hanging out at a bar.  The camera glides past us, zooming in…

Travel Channel & Samantha Brown

Samantha Brown is host for the Travel Channel’s “Weekend Getaways with Samantha Brown”.  She has also hosted other shows on the same network, such as “Great Hotels”, “Passport to Europe” and “Passport to Latin America”.  We’ve been watching her show for several years now on Sundays mornings and really enjoy her work.  So it was…

Onward and Upwards

Today I pay homage to Dr. Rupert.  He was the man who taught me it was o.k. to be an actor.  He didn’t sit me down and have a heart to heart discussion about it, nor was he a famous actor who inspired me to be like him.  It was much simpler than that… It…

Best Buy display in Houston!

In my previous blog about the Samsung displays in Best Buy, I asked my friends and family to send me a picture of themselves posing with my display if they saw me. I’m excited that I have now received my second picture!  Above is Gabbie Bode, daughter of John & Nikki Bode.  They are good friends of…

Best Buy display in Sugarland, TX!

In my previous blog about the Samsung displays in Best Buy, I asked my friends and family to send me a picture of themselves posing with my display if they saw me. I’m excited that I got my first picture!  Above is my close friend…. actually, I call her my Mexican Aunt, Yole Cruz.  She spotted my…
