Cast as the Master of Time:
About a year after David Cassidy started head-lining
I guess I have been singing all my life. I was in church choir when I was a kid. I sang in high school choir, and I auditioned for a Song and Dance Company that came thru my hometown when I was a senior in high school. Stewart Daylida, the Master of Laughter in EFX, was on that tour. The group was called the Young Americans. That's where I received my semi-formal theater training.
I moved on to work for Disney. I performed in LA, Japan, and at the Orlando parks. Then I worked in LA as a model and tried my hand at acting, but music was my first love. I worked in revue shows at Caesar's Atlantic City before I made my way to Vegas.
My first show in Vegas was a revue at the Sands called Swing, Swing, Swing. Then for two years I was the lead singer at the Folies Bergere. When David Cassidy took over the lead in EFX, I was hired to be his understudy.
I would eventually like to round out my performing career with a Broadway credit. But I'm not in a hurry to leave EFX.
The main things in my life now are my beautiful wife and my new baby boy. That's the important part of my life. The rest is just show biz.
