Dawn of the Dead

Dawn of the Dead

Universal Backlot  June 16, 2004

Backlot at Universal - the reshoots for "Dawn of the Dead." It was FREEZING. The ripped clothes and the spray of cold blood at 3 in the morning... the rest of us zombies did nothing but shake and freeze for hours.

It was so much fun.


Pasadena Shoot

Far, Far Away  June 16, 2004

A photography student wanted me to sit for him - it was early north of Pasadena - or as I call it, "there are no Starbucks in the canyons."

Just a typical day in LA.


Crossing Jordan

Crossing Jordan

Somewhere off the 210 in a park  June 27, 2004

This is what happens when you cross Jordan. Production turned me - well, it's not ACTUALLY me - it's a dummy of me - into a rotted corpse for the season finale. Throughout the episode, they try to put my face back together through imaging computers until they reveal what I really look like. The best part were the live maggots in my cheeks.

Untitled Forest Lawn Photograph

Untitled Forest Lawn Photograph

Forest Lawn  August 09, 2004

This photo makes me laugh everytime I see it. It's me, my friends - Matty, Peter, Summer and David.

I'm not sure WHY we are lined up the way we are. I just always imagine the caption: "Friends enjoy a day at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Burbank."

I'm also not sure why Summer and I are wearing matching Sesame Street shirt.

It makes me laugh every time I look at it.

Burbank  October 28, 2004

My original group - Myself, Peter, Virginia (alias "Irginia") and Darren and the performance of "Grand Hotel" in which V performed.


Grand Hotel

Grand Hotel

Burbank  October 28, 2004

Virgina and Peter. In the Honolulu Marathon 2003, Virginia ironed on letters of her name. That way, people on the sidelines scream out and encourage you.

The "V" fell off. So for most of the race, people screamed, "Go Irginia!"

Peter stopped at McDonald's along the way.

I miss them very much and wish they were doing the marathon this year.
