As a child, I spent hours pretending to be other people. Those impressions, accents, and an increasingly odd sense of humor started out as a defense mechanism for a quiet and geeky kid, but developed into a unique personality. I'm quiet when you first meet me, but once I get to know you I can talk a blue streak.
I spent 21 years in the Air Force, subjecting people all over the world to random impressions and personalities, and yet somehow I managed to retire without being submitted for a mental evaluation. The Air Force taught me how to speak in front of groups, and once I realized it wouldn't kill me I started to have some fun with it. Now I enjoy playing with Improv Colorado regularly, and in films and plays whenever my schedule allows it.
