This video was made to promote a subscription product for MTVN’s Shockwave.com.
The goal was to explain the product through the perspective of an imaginary user,
bringing personality, humor, and whimsy to what would typically be a boring infomercial.

Here’s a blast from the past. This was taken after I interviewed Sinead (the first time) at WOMAD
(World of Music, Art and Dance) in Denver, Colorado. I was fortunate to have a backstage pass with my dear friend from college, Mark Davis aka Richard Cheese Lounge Against the Machine fame. It was by sheer luck that we were at the right place, right time and simply asked if we could speak to Sinead. Remember, this was soon after she had been booed off stage at the Dylan concert. She was shy, soft spoken and gracious. I cherish this photo.
Today was the 3rd and final day of WonderCon here in San Francisco. I had the pleasure
of sitting next to Daniel Logan who was very down to earth, sweet and charismatic.
It must be the water in New Zealand ! Logan is a young actor, some of his credits include:
Boba Fett (2009) The Legend of Johnny Lingo (2003) …. Young Pua
“TakaPu: A Gannet in the South Seas” (2003) TV series (voice) …. TakaPu
Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones
Across from me, the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld, Larry Thomas. He was also very
gracious and real. Larry’s next acting project? He is currently working on a Western film
in Utah. His face lit up while talking about it since he grew up watching Westerns.
I ran into an old friend from my past, Keith Knight, “Gentleman Cartoonist.”
Knight is quite prolific churning out witty, topical daily and weekly strips. Knight has
3: K Chronicles, Knight Life Comics and (TH)INK ! www.knightlifecomic.com
I just did some tutorial voice work for a brand new consumer buying service called BIFFLE.
Besides VO, my other love is producing environmental media for my show, Planet Check.
On the site, you can hear snappy, 1 minute reports with Michael Franti, Jack Johnson,
Neil Young and more. Be sure to visit my REPORTS page for video interviews with
Jane Goodall from Live Earth, and my most recent interview with EPA’s Regional
