You have reached the resting place of the Wayfarer, located at the end of time. This is a land of forgotten dreams and lonely majesty. I am your guide, the Wayfarer. For those of you who are not acquainted, I am a twenty-five year-old white male who lives in Utah (at the moment) A little about me: - I have a great interest in fantasy and science fiction. My favorite author is, without question, Robert Jordan. (Here's a theory about the Wheel of Time series: it's a real place in another universe which Jordan has managed to catch a glimpse of...) Some of my other favorite authors include (but are not limited to) George Martin (A Game of Thrones) R.A. Salvatore (Drizzt and Artemis are two of the coolest characters ever created), Richard A. Knaak (his Dragonrealm is fascinating), Mike Resnik (Santiago, Soothsayer, Widowmaker, etc. - all of his novels about the inner frontier of the galaxy are furiously paced and filled with some of the best characters anyone has ever created. The Angel is a bad, bad man!), Hickman and Weiss (I'm not a huge Dragonlance fan, but the Legends series was impressive. I also liked the Death Gate cycle, although the ending was kind of lame), Michael Moorcock (Elric the tragic anti-hero, of course, and the other Eternal Champions), and Elizabeth Moon (Paksennarion). This list is by no means complete, but it gives you an idea. I also enjoy writing, and somewhere below you'll find a link or two to some of my own stuff. - One of my favorite things to do is get together with my friends and play AD&D. - I am the lead vocalist and bassist for the hard rock band Reckless Ambition. We're a fun-loving action back, a throwback (I suppose) to late 80's/early 90's hard rock, my favorite musical genre. Some of my favorite bands include: Poison, Warrant, Motley Crue, Guns n' Roses, Skid Row, Ugly Kid Joe, Bon Jovi, Cinderella. I know it's not 'politically correct' to like that style of music in this day and age, and frankly I couldn't care less. I dislike alternative almost as much as I dislike rap (I think they are musically lacking and pointless, pretending to be meaningful and thoughtful - sort of like the emperor's new clothes) I like classical music, oldies (some), and most songs from musicals (and no, I'm not gay). - I'm also a professional actor. No, I'm not famous (not yet) but I've done several professional contracts, including a few small parts in film, but mostly stage-stuff. (To get an idea, it's sort of like being a minor league baseball player. The pay and fame just aren't anywhere near what they are in the big leagues, but you're working your way up; you're a rising star. Oh well, I don't really follow baseball, so that may not have been a good comparison) I love the stage and have done shows (mostly musicals, but many plays as well) since I was about nine or so, and had several leading roles. Someday I'd like to really get into film (who wouldn't, right?), and someday I will. Recently I returned from a national tour of The Adventures of Robin Hood, in which I played the Sheriff of Nottingham. (Actually, now that I'm updating my page, I should say my most recent contract was in Maine, where I performed a one-man show called 'Legends, Haunts, and Folklore' aboard the Margaret Todd, the four -masted schooner) - I'm into water skiing. Actually my favorite thing is skurfing, with kneeboarding just behind, and waterskiing a distant third (and I don't like barefooting at all), but they're all 'waterskiing' to most people. Growing up 'down south' as I did, there weren't many chances to try snow skiing, but my family just moved out to Utah, and I went out this winter and gave it a try. Fun! And pretty easy. Snowboarding is the coolest (also pretty easy, although everyone warned me it would be almost impossible - maybe it was easier for me because of my strong background in skateboarding and skurfing) - I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon). I know religion is a forbidden topic in most polite conversation, but I really enjoy discussing philosophy, universal truths and principles, etc., and that's just what religion is (I am continually surprised at how many 'enlightened philosophers' don't realize that...) - Politically I am as far to the right as you can get, without falling off. I am ultra conservative, and not ashamed to admit it. I love talking politics with liberals, because they don't have any valid positions, just 'feelings'. I'm not harsh, and I don't flame those who disagree with my viewpoint, I just point out the error of their position! I'm a big Rush Limbaugh fan, as well as a G. Gordon Liddy fan, and an Art Bell fan (on the strange side, I know, but he's fascinating nonetheless, and many's the time I've found myself staying up all night to listen. I can't listen to him here in Ga., he's not carried, and if anyone knows when he'll be available here, please let me know.) I also listen to Michael Reagan, and Ken Hambly (the black avenger)I suppose the argument could be made that I listen to too much talk radio! - I trade on the stock market for money. It's pretty easy, and I don't devote much time at it, so I guess it's not a 'real' job, but it's the closest thing to a 'real job' that I have. - I love movies. Here's some of my favorites: Willow (my absolute favorite), Star Wars (all three), Indiana Jones (all three), The Princess Bride, Independance Day, Mission Impossible, Robin Hood - Prince of Thieves, A Few Good Men, Crimson Tide, etc. (I'll add more later) Here's a brief physical description of me: I am five feet ten inches tall, about 145 pounds, with long (shoulder-length) dark blonde hair and blue eyes. I'll try to post a picture sometime soon. To get an idea of what I look like, just think of River Phoenix with longer hair. I used to get asked for his autograph a lot when I was younger (and when he was still alive) It was annoying, especially since I really am not thrilled with the lifestyle he lived, the politcal positions he held, or even the movies he made (except Last Crusade; that was great.)

As a prof. actor (which I now am, forgive me for not modifying my page in so long :) I'm often out of town/state on a contract, sometimes on tour. So I've set up an email address on the web. It is:
