About Me

Acting/Talent Experience:
Participated in one musical in college. It was a great time. I play the piano and sing weekly in front of an audience of about 300-400 people. I have also filmed a TV pilot as the main talent that was to be pitched to A&E. It was for a docu-reality series.
Am I affiliated with unions?:
A major event in my life was:
My wife and I were pregnant with a child who was diagnosed to die shortly after being born. Many people thought we should abort, but we carried her to term. While she did die shortly after being born the positive impact she had on our lives and others lives was profound. I recognized the impact of choices we make and how those choices continue to affect my life and others.
The accomplishment I am most proud of:
There are many. Parenting my 7 children, gaining my Master's degree, getting my Ph.D. in psychology. staying married for 21 years, building my own home, being self-employed. These are some of the top things in my life that I hold dear.
An embarrassing story about me was:
I pride myself in knowing things. Anytime I look the fool i get embarrassed. I hate that.
My favorite Movie:
Fifth Element; Band of Brothers
My favorite TV Show:
My best Physical Trait is:
Topics off limit to me at a party are:
When anything turns expicit, I am not interested in continuing the conversation. Those kinds of conversations generally don't lead to great and informative discussions. They usually lead to people getting angry and hurt
Do I have tattoos or piercings:
One tattoo. Heart on left shoulder with my wifes name in it
The weirdest thing about me is:
I am a storehouse of useless knowledge. I seem to know a little about a lot of things. I guess chalk it up to my ADD. I am always on the lookout for new and interesting information.
My friends would say my best qualities are:
I think they would say my best quality is abilty to assess some situation and form an opinion about something quickly and usually be right. This can intimidate some, but it seems to suit me well in the position I hold in life. I think they would also say my ability to connect with people who don't want to be connected with. My ability to be a teen whisperer sort. Parents like that I can connect with their angry, irritable teens.
My friends would say my worst qualities are:
I think they would say my worst quality is that I form opinions quickly and make sure I let people know what my opinions are. I can't help myself. If someone is doing something wrong I want to help them. If they don't take my advice it's their loss. This can be annoying to people.
The personality traits I most like about myself are:
I like that I am a pretty perceptive person. My common sense has helped a lot of people see their ways out of difficult situations in life. I like my quick witted comments in the moment. I like that I can make people feel at ease in an uncomfortable situation. I also like that I can ask direct questions to uncover hidden problems in relationships.
The personality traits I like least about myself are:
I don't like that I am pretty critical of things. I am not always an optimist and often look for the negative things that people present. For example, I see photos on this website of people and immediately think of what is bad about those photos rather than the good things of the people in the photos.
Miscellaneous Information:
When I die I want to buried in Disneyland
