As a photographer I am always taking pictures of my family.
A few years ago I decided to send a picture of one of
my daughters off to some talent and casting agencies in
San Francisco to see if there was any work for her in commercials
or photo layouts for magazines. I was called by a very talented
lady by the name of Belinda Irons who owns San Francisco Top
Models and Talent. She started providing tryouts for my daughter
Diana who eventually did some work for Sega and was on television
on several occasions.

While Diana was trying out, Belinda asked me to try out also.
I did, and after all these years I still am in a photo shoot
once in awhile and occasionally a TV commercial. I have included
a couple of the pictures of me in photo layouts and I have been
in a rap music video, I've been a fisherman for American Express
and recently was sitting in a fish tank chair for Pointcast which
was aired on CNN. Several other commercials I was in were cut,
or never made it to TV. I did enough that I had to join the Screen
Actors Guild (SAG) though.
