About Desi

I grew up in a showbiz family. My mother, known as Jean Brazil, was a descendant of renowned New Orleans voodoo queen, Marie LaVeau, and was a member of the Katherine Dunham dance company, and later became a well known psychic on the south side of Chicago, Illinois.

I spent most of my time growing up on the streets of Chicago, Illinois, where as a youngster I was a bit of a loner with few friends and a reputation for being able to handle myself in a fight and getting into trouble with the law more than once.

I began making movies on Super-8 film with my two best childhood friends, Ernesto Aviles, and Luis Gonzales, at an early age and later attended Columbia College in Chicago, Illinois, where I sought to refine my film making skills by studying film making and directing under Gaylon Emerzian, and acting for the stage, under Dale McFadden. Without having finished high school, I had to promise that I would get my GED before graduating from Columbia. Unable to afford the high tuition fees, I eventually left Columbia College before graduating, believing I had learned all that I needed, but wishing I could learn more. Though I did go on to attain my GED as promised.

My varied work history has ranged from truck driver, restaurant manager, Chicago fire fighter, U.S. Marine, nightclub bouncer and eventually led to me working in the Rowdy Herrington film, "Gladiator," where I gained my much coveted sag card and met one of my martial arts idols, Benny 'The Jet' Urquidez.

I decided it was time to change my life and pooled all my savings from working three jobs at the time, jumped on my motorcycle and left Chicago in 1991 on a five and a half day journey to Hollywood to pursue my life long goal of becoming an actor and filmmaker in Hollywood, and I've been there ever since, making those goals come to fruition.

Over the years I've worked in various capacities in the movie business. Working as an actor, stuntman, writer, director, producer, special effects makeup artist, camera man, director of photography, video editor, videographer, boom operator, martial arts trainer, fight choreographer, precision stunt driver, and monster suit maker.
