Part of being trigger-proof is being able to laugh at the ridiculous, frequently embarrassing things that you've tried over the years.
If you scroll down, you will find an old standup comedy set, a video made by some friends in India, my voiceover demo, links to blogs I've written, and a short film I made a really, really, really long time ago.

My Train P3 Experience - a new body meets an old mind through a six-week workout program with Nerijus Bagdonas. (Spoiler: this guy is amazing!!! Best workout ever!!!)
40 Days and 40 Mics - a standup comedian in New York City attempts to go to 40 open mics over the course of 40 nights...what could go wrong?
Misfit Mountain - a ski bum in a mountain town tends bar, flirts with tourists, and hits the slopes.

...because I didn't know how or where to get real ones. Also, I thought that if casting agents laughed at my content, maybe they wouldn't notice that I had no idea what I was doing.
