I’ll try not to be too syrupy or over-nostalgic here, but Kurt Cobain really changed things for me musically in my formative years. I remember seeing the video for Smells Like Teen Spirit debut on 120 Minutes in the fall of ‘91. Unbeknownst to my parents, I was up late and watching MTV way past my bedtime. Those cheerleaders with the anarchy symbol, that razor blade voice, that drummer who bounced around like Animal from the Muppets… it was mesmerizing. I got the cassette tape for Nevermind that Christmas, and my Southern belle cousin couldn’t fathom why the lead singer of a band would give you the middle finger in a picture when you opened the liner notes. But I was hooked on this band. I bought the previous album, Bleach, and from then on… me and my friends would practice those power chords in a garage and aspire to make noise that achieved Nirvana. 
Our amps and guitars became more tattered and our distortion more dirty. 
I was a freshman in high school when someone ran up to me and told me that Kurt Cobain killed himself. The idea of suicide was straight out of the movie Heathers to me in 1994, and I didn’t quite know how to process the news that this singer was now gone forever. I never got a chance to see Nirvana play live, but I’m forever grateful that I grew up in a time when music was challenged. That glitz and glamour were meaningless and songs came from an honest and poignant place.

Whoops. I got syrupy there. Ah well. 20 years later… RIP Kurt Cobain.

Taken in 2006 on the set of the movie The Prestige. I’m in the bar scene when Hugh Jackman shoots Christian Bale’s finger off. I remember standing there and thinking, ‘Holy shit. Batman… Wolverine… Batman… Wolverine.’
Nerd boner.

The time has arrived. The epic finale of the first season of Tumbleweed has arrived! A lot of time and energy went into making this show, so I hope you enjoy! Will there be a Season 2? That’s up to you. Help make it famous, y’all by sharing it with EVERYONE.

Season 2 could have some great cameos… but we need your help to get there!

*You Are Here

This is an exciting yet somewhat frightening time in my life. After living in Los Angeles for 12 years, I’ve dedicated the past several to writing and acting in original film projects and performing stand-up comedy around town.

Before that, I was writing and co-writing screenplays with all my hopes entangled with connections and favors of the Hollywood bureaucracy. A little movement here, and a little movement there… but overall it was nothing. Promised the stars but in reality I was handed a nebulous void.

That all changed when I stopped writing and creating for everyone else. I became less concerned about what others could do for me and more concerned with how much I could accomplish before I shuffle off this mortal coil.

I’m a husband and a father. I work a full time 9 to 5 job during the week. I go to open mics 4 to 5 times every evening, and if I’m lucky enough… I’ll book 5 to 10 comedy shows each month - without pay. I obsess over tweeting jokes and creating Vines. After a late show I go home and stay up until 2am to write something new. I spend the majority of my time with my family on the weekends. I don’t sleep very often, and when I do… I feel like I’m missing out on something.

But it’s worth it. Every minute of it because I choose to do so and I choose to do it honestly.To entertain others and hopefully make them laugh. It’s my favorite thing in the entire world. Why am I writing this? A pep talk for me I suppose, but maybe to inspire you to do the same.

I’ll leave you with a wonderful quote from Brenda Ueland:

“Everybody is original, if he tells the truth, if he speaks from himself. But it must be from his true self and not from the self he thinks he should be.”
