2015 was a wonderful and interesting year. The absolute highlight was the joy of walking my daughter Molly down the aisle to marry Mark Purcell. Wendy and I are blessed with two wonderful sons-in-law.
Another highlight was being cast in a short film called “Turkey” which was written and directed by Erik Linthorst. It tells the story of a very dysfunctional family on Thanksgiving Day. The film has garnered attention in various film festivals around the country.

Also saw the launch of the video I co-produced and edited: “Baby Care 101 – The Ultimate Baby Care Manual”. Starring my wonderful wife Wendy and her partner Corky Harvey in a labor of love (excuse the pun) that took 2 years to make and we used all real babies and moms. This is the perfect baby shower gift.

Performed stand-up with my comedy mentor Kenny Bob Davis around the country with sold out shows at the Edgewater Hotel and Casino in Laughlin NV and Comedy on the Coast at the Chinook Winds Indian Casino and Resort in Oregon.
Hope your 2016 is a great one.
