What About Bob?

From a very young age I felt myself pulled towards the arts. From woods and metal class to movies, TV and music,  I loved it all.  I also felt that “rush” I would get when I would make my family laugh or smile at something I was doing.  I pretty much knew from day one I would end up as an artist.

My journey has taken me all of over this country.  North to south and coast to coast.  You could say I am truly living the life of the traveling performer. Packing and unpacking my trunk never knowing when and where I will be settling down.  Sometimes it’s a year or two.  Sometimes it’s a decade or more.

What IS constant in my pursuit is my love of the craft.  I have an amazing mentor who taught me the love of what I do.  If I never work another day as an actor, he has made me a better human being.  You cannot ask for anything more than that.

But, thankfully, I am working and I love what I do.  Having the chance to do that is something that I never take for granted.  To be able to effect people. To be able to take them away from their worries for even just a little while.  To be able to take a writer’s words and bring them to life.  What an honor that is.

I don’t know where this journey is going to take me, but I will continue enjoying the exploration with an open heart and an open mind.  And I thank YOU for taking it with me.  I will leave you with one of the keys to happiness . . . In life, don’t strive for perfection. Strive for better!
