Mobil DJ & Wedding Videographer

Also back when I lived in Miami, I side-lined in these endeavors on the weekend.  I even was the DJ in a bar for a while.

Actor

I was a successful SAG commercial actor in back when I lived in Miami.  And I did print ads too!

Author

I wrote an e-book about the aesthetics of editing reality shows called "EDITING REALITY", which is for sale on my website, http://www.chazmoedit.com.

Drummer

When I was in my teens and 20s I was in several garage bands.  Since then I only play by myself with recorded music, except for  New Years Eve 2007 when I sat in with the band Face First for a song because their drummer was out with a hand injury.
