Working on Hoda Saad music video, Matfatkarnish! Due out in Summer 2009 on the Rotana network, Dubai, UAE! Gotta see how I didn't make the dancing team on the "making of the movie"! This shot is on the canals in Venice Beach! The dancers were amazing on the bridge! Here we are setting up a crane shot!

Auditioning for a psycho role, March 2009. With Mr. Gaines' reader's theater technique class, and using a Stanislavski character center, lots of memorization, I was able to book the part!
I can hear him now, "Pina, where is that stupid dog of yours!"

Opening night, "Drag me to Hell", May 2009, with good friend, Flor de Maria Chahua, who comes out in the opening scenes of the movie! Flor and I did a few scenes together on America's Most Wanted, "The Rosa Story", where I played her rapist(GASP!). February 2007. I would advise to not take your kids under 18 to see this movie! http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2188295/

The Familia in Disneyland! 2006. I am holding Meemee's, with Sanatsu-san in middle, Tabi-tai in center front, Mina to my right, and Sheeesh to my left! The good Lord Jesus Christ has blessed me with a wonderful family and their Mother is absolutely amazing! I cut the umbililcal on all of them!

Entourage; with my record they let me drive the Jeep! Can you imagine? Thanks to Mr. Harrison's Summer drivers ed class going into the 10th grade; I was able to dodge the running dog, throw a donut, miss the rolling soccer ball, go around the kids, exit the vehicle with my AK-47 while still looking 'Chingon', get out and whack a narc, avoid hitting the cameraman, and then get back in the jeep with everyone on board avoid hitting the cameraman, again, put the jeep in reverse, with only 8 takes!

Take 53, while waiting for Adrian Grenier to get his lines right in Spanish! I didn't think someone could actually mess up lines in Spanish but he sure did a good job! I'm glad I took Mr. Diosdado's Spanish class. This part was shot in Santa Clarita, California. Valusa Ranch.

Rhys Coiro, getting interviewed, with me and my AK-47 (background), with a HUGE Coke Stash to his right! Gotta make sure no one starts pinching my stash! Ha/Ha! Entourage, Episode 43, Season 4. This part was shot in Arcadia, where Fantasy Island was filmed, (Arboretum near Pasadena, CA).

I could barely keep up with the professional dancers for the Music Video. I can still break dance though! Boo-Yaa! It was almost like preparing for the All-School play back in 1987, "Whoopi"! I still remember my lines: "Me Black Eagle! Me no can't have. ...., two, three woman? You make Black Eagle Laugh, aaahhhhuuu, ahuuu, ahuuu."
