10 Little Known Things About Me... 1. I wanted to be an Architect all through High School until I realized my Senior year there was way too much Math involved... 2. I can juggle...A bit...But I am in no way ready for Ringling Brothers! 3. I have never shaved off my mustache...Beard...Yes...Mustache...NEVER! 4. I was a Union Carpenter Apprentice, and I have built 3 houses from the ground up. 5. I starred in a Bud Light beer commercial filmed in Hollywood which aired Nationally. 6. I have been fortunate enough to have dinner with Mick Jaggar of the Rolling Stones and Donny Osmond. (Talk about a spectrum!) 7. I have built furniture like a bird cage (shaped like a circus wagon), a makeup vanity, and a dresser. 8. My Dad is my Hero, and every day it scares me how much I act, and at times, look like my father! 9. I love the theatre and have been in many productions like "Guys and Dolls," "West Side Story," "Man of La Mancha," and I even dressed as a Playboy Bunny for a lead roll! 10. I laugh out loud at every "3 Stooges" episode I watch...and I enjoy the fact that my Wife doesn't get why...
