See the Flash version of My Life So Far

I rode a rickshaw in Taiwan hours before I was born, and took my first airplane ride hours after. I had a completely natural childbirth in an ambulance on the way to the hospital, but then needed a complete blood transfusion for RH Factor the same day.

I finally got to see the real Mona Lisa in France, but not really because of the reflection of the glass in front of it. I drove from Frankfurt, Germany to Tangiers, Morocco in a VW bug. I fell off a wall and dropped 8 feet face-first into a pile of gravel in Spain, and then off a catamaran yacht into the harbor in Gibraltar. I swam in the warm turquoise waters of the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. I climbed over the ruins of an ancient theatre in Athens, Greece, and later performed in an ancient Greek play. I spent weeks getting a special pass to see films at the Cannes Film Festival, but when I finally got there I didn’t want to see any films.

I drove from San Francisco to Panama, where I got my watch stolen off my wrist. I took a 3,000-mile bus trip from one end of Brazil to the other. In Rio de Janeiro I walked the sands of Ipanema and Copacabana, where I got my hotel key stolen from out of my pocket. I had a bank security guard point a machine gun at me in Buenos Aires, when all I was doing was walking by. I rode an old school bus to Lake Titicaca in Machu Picchu, but it broke down before I got there and I had to turn back. I flew in a seaplane that took off from the Amazon River and landed in Peru; but when I tried to go to Chile, police put me in jail because military forgot to stamp my passport on the Amazon.

I drove from San Francisco to New York three times. I stood on top of the World Trade Center in Manhattan and admired the view, and stood in its lobby to buy theatre tickets.

In one month I bicycled 1,300 miles from San Francisco, California to Vancouver, Canada along Highway One, and never got a single flat tire. I lived through the hippy flower child 60’s in Berkeley.

I water-skied on Lake Tahoe and snow skied above it, but broke my leg when the snow turned to icy rain. I broke my thumb rollerblading on Venice Beach.

I flipped off my motorcycle and rolled on the street when I crashed it on a curve. I broke my toe doing a side flip while tumbling at the YMCA. I jumped out of a perfectly good airplane with a parachute, did
everything wrong, but still landed ok. I did a double back flip and a double-twisting back flip on the trampoline, with no harness or ropes. I jumped off a balcony and fell 15 feet into an airbag in stunt school.

I performed a dance in front of 3,000 people in Zellerbach Auditorium in Berkeley. I was an extra on a TV show, but when I saw it they had dubbed some other actor’s voice and paid him the money for saying my line. I worked as a production assistant and stand-in on the TV show Hooperman for two years, with John Ritter. I was paid to work in a movie-of-the week in Hawaii for one week. I spoke 18 words as an actor in Police Academy 2, the biggest grossing film of the summer…for one week.
