Q1 How did you first get interested in doing ads?
A I was asked to audition for a TV commercial in 2008. I landed the part and since have gained two agents in both television and print ad work.
Q2 Tell us about your AT&T ad and other upcoming projects.
A I was chosen back in December 2012 to be part of the new AT&T ad campaign, and the photo shoot occurred this past January. The campaign launched this summer, and the ad is displayed in 10 major U.S. cities and Mexico, and major publications. I just completed two more commercials. I also have my professional comedy showcase, The Brew Ha-Ha Comedy Showcase touring this fall.
Q3 Do you like ads more than comedy?
A I really enjoy being on set for commercials and print ad work. But my first love is comedy, and nothing compares to the thrill of a live audience and hearing laughter.
Q4 Other hobbies?
A I play the guitar and harmonica. It’s a cathartic way for me to rid my day of any anxiety and escape the trials of daily life.
Q5 Little known fact about you?
A I don’t have any cavities. I know what you’re thinking, I should do an ad for Crest or Colgate. Hmmm, not a bad idea.
