Well I'm glad to be back on track. Have some steady work upcoming for the next two weeks and did my first photo shoot job in HK for a Property Ad for the upcoming Stanley Building. I had this really cool hair stylist and I have never seen anyone so passionate about doing hair... the guy literally worked up a sweat. I wish I could get my hair looking like this everyday. Check it out. Well off to my busy week. Hope everyone had a great weekend.
Ok, so after a long enduring day yesterday I took some time out with some buddies to go see "Forbidden Kingdom" which is something that I have really been looking forward to. And of course one of my favourite parts (as I"m sure everyone else's) was the Jet Li / Jackie Chan fight. All I can say about it is....WOW!! WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW. To me it was the equivalent of having Robert De Niro and Al Pacino doing a scene together in HEAT (one of my favourite movies and scenes of all time.... I think I almost know i...Read more
Ok so if you remember I had mentioned in one of my blogs about having a really rough day and having it end with the washing machine leaking all over the freak'n kitchen. Well things didn't seem to end there as a day or two later i turned on my laptop only to have the router conk out and spent the whole day trying to figure out how to fix it (little did i know that all i had to do was turn the power off and on for the router). The next day I used the toilet only to have that conk out. My room mate was beginning to wonder...Read more
Haha, no this blog doesnot involve bitching about the lack of work for myself, I'm done talking about that. I'm actually talking about my Chinese and not sure if it's getting better or worse. I try to practice my cantonese when I can with friends or when I'm buying things. Sometimes friends say "very good" and sometimes they are like "what the hell?!" . I've gotten good at saying "I don't need the plastic bags" at the grocery store and how much is it etc. But sometimes...Read more
I've been making extra efforts to stay positive these days due to the lack of work. But I found that keeping the faith caught up with me earlier this week. Was having a really bad day on Tuesday, friend had left town, movie plans feel thru and when i went home to do some laundry my machine leaked all over the floor in the kitchen so i now had a mess to clean up. No matter how positive I tried to stay the day got worse. ...Read more
Ok so for years I've been working on Film Sets back in Vancouver and with union regulations and legal obligations , lock ups on set have to be tight. Therefore AD s on set would have a rough time telling pedestrians that they can't walk on until the shot is done etc. So there many times when someone who didn't speak english, or was elderly and or just plain didn't care would just walk through and ruin the shot. So I would look at these people and always say to myself "man don't these idiots realize that we a...Read more
Well today I was supposed to go to Guangzhou for a photo shoot only to have it postponed due to rain. Sunday is usually my off day from the gym but went last nite cause I thought i would be missing out on it today having to go to China for the day. So now I am sitting at home where it's really dark outside for this time of day. So I thought I would share my stunt reel featuring hilites from my stunt career. It hasn't been much of one but did have some nice moments: smacking Kevin Sorbo around, getting beaten up by Russell Wong ...Read more

Hi everyone. I know that it's been a while since I posted a blog but promise you that it will have been worth it.

Also a big hand to Alive Not Dead... you guys are so dedicated to giving artists the kick start they need and Saturdays concer...Read more
