In a nutshell, I've been traveling since I graduated from high school. I've lived in CA, UT, NV, PR, NYC. I've taught skiing, skied in France, done short tours of Italy, England, Ireland, Scotland, Brussels, Bruge, Paris, and spoken at a conference in Dubai, UAE on the health benefits of alternative medicine. I've conducted aviation accident investigations in Mexico, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica and Colombia - in Spanish. I've studied English literature, criminalistics, art, attended two years of law school, supervised the litigation division of a law firm in PR, worked for the law firm in Las Vegas that represented the police, fire and highway departments, which included studying autopsy photos and autopsy reports, and I've written legal briefs that have won trials and one appeal. I then moved to NYC and, in less than three years, studied Improv at UCB, standup comedy writing and performing, screenwriting and filmmaking with students from France, Italy, Spain, Argentina, Brazil, Taiwan, China, and India, and have made five short films and won one screenwriting contest for best short script.
