Unusual Opportunities

Not included in Bio or resume here are some of the unusual things I've done.... Performed on stage at the Montreal Jazz festival (around 2004 ish) with the "funk brothers" yep they asked up people from the crowd and I got to sing in front of a few thousands people. Somewhere theres a video of it but I havent found it. While working as a "stand in" on grown ups I got to read a scene with oscar winner Selma Hyak (of course it'll never be on screen but it was a great experience.) I've performed on the stage at a BBkings in Florida... dancing with a James Brown tribute band for a song or two. I did street theatre in Covent Garden London in my youth. Once at a club while in college the power went out and I started singing dancing and tapping a rythm to get the club and party going again. Also around my college days I went through a phase of trying stand up comedy in various clubs. When I first arrived in Boston I would perform at coffee houses with my original songs and before that in the UK I wrote some trance style music with a musician ( Paul Bradder)this was when computer music was just begining ( I think I still have the tapes somewhere). While in Chicago at the Art institute ( college days again) I performed at various poetry slams and diary readings.

I've played roles ranging from cows, to smurfs, to elves, to Betsy Ross, to Abigail Adams, to a pair of gorilla feet.Who knows what's next? Perhaps I'll have a chance in future to play..... Anna from the king and I or Little Dorrit, Mary Poppins or Janis Joplin the possibilities are endless.
