Where are you now?
Living the quiet married life in Columbus, NJ, and working for Lockheed Martin, but finding ways to blend spontaneous improv-inspired humor into government work. It's a challenge, but I'm up to it! :)
What do you miss most about being in The Mixed Signals?
The rest of the gang who I miss very much each time I remember the
troupe. Improv game that I miss the most has got to be Half Life.
What do you miss least about being in The Mixed Signals?
I'm actually hard pressed to find something bad about the Mixed Signals experience. The road trip up to Boston was a little rough, but quickly redeemed by a hilarious re-telling of the "burrito story" with Matt, Vin, Jared, and I in the car on the way up. Least favorite improv game : Toss up between Inner Thoughts and the warm-up Hot Spot.
Advice to current and future members:
Cherish every single practice and every single performance. They are definitely the ingredients for some great memories. And learn early on to stop taking the stale suggestions of "porn" as a film and theater style, "blender" as a household object, and "proctologist" as an occupation. Trust me, the audience will learn to appreciate the newfound variety in the shows. ;)
