Went to University of California at Santa Cruz to study Theater and Film for four years. Also studied music on my own and formed a band with a friend, doing vocals and rhythm guitar. As a teen one of my serious hobbies was photography. Also did skits with friends and generally placed in the top five in humorous interpretation competitions in my senior year in high school (National forensics League). I needed an income producing job so I then got my Associates in Computer studies, gpa 4.0 and went on to be a programmer and into upper division studies at San Jose State and University of Colorado at Denver. In the past few years I learned Java on my own and am now border line passing on the Oracle Certified Java Programmer Exam, based on a couple of practice exams (4test.com and Oracle's). Working on getting back into amateur /independent film production, including advertising pieces for web sites. I studied martial arts full throttle for five years, so I'm interested in stunt work as well. I'm in shape again, doing occasional half-marathons and working on getting my time down to two hours. Anybody want to do some stunt demo videos?
