I'm a theatre major and screenwriting minor at the University of Southern California. While I love music, my first love is acting and writing in/for theatre, film, and television. Improv comedy is also a pasttime.
One of the short movies I wrote and acted in with my friends is available here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=FlG4rq6Z_LQ . I'm The Frenchman.
In addition to guitar, I also dabble in harmonica, piano, banjo, and didjeridoo.
