***Update from 3/22/2014*** I have a terrible wound on the bottom of my left foot again, I have yet to have any procedure to help the situation. I’ve had no surgical procedures, no procedures at all. My pain is extreme, it wakes me up at all times of the night, during the day I am cringing in agony. Currently, the way the situation is, I am unable to do any work in any way, anywhere.

I am very enthusiastic about continuing my career in the movie industry, as well as doing commercial advertising on television and print ads. I love many Television shows past and present that I always wished I could have been a part of, even if in some small way, however, living in Minnesota doesn’t give me any of the same opportunities that people have who live in Los Angeles or New York. My proudest moment in my very small acting career, was having the opportunity to play a role in the Farrelly Brothers Movie “Hall Pass.”

I stand up and stare him down, as I listen to Fred crack a joke about me, and I smash him in the face with my right fist.
