BioThe Scalesman was born just outside of Vegas. This might explain his extreme luckyness... at surviving near death experiences. Recently he fell 20 feet out a window and landed perfectly on his feet, snapping them like dry ramen noodles, but surviving. The Scalesman is more reasonable now. The Scalesman understands that he is not invincible anymore. His gaurdian angel quit! Time to act like an adult. It was a good run. Even as a child, The Scalesman challenged his environment continuously. At 16 he was fighting frat boys and eluding keystone cops. Making people laugh at keg parties, Deflating the ego's around him was a favorite past time. Demonstrating always, a proclivity for irreverence at a young age. A regular life just wouldn't do. Growing up in the college town of "Isla Vista" California there was plenty of trouble to get into. Soon he was pulled off the streets and put into a Group home for wayward children. This only strengthened his resolve to fight for his right to be an individual. At 16 his mother introduced casually that the family was going to move outside into a tee-pee. She'd read an article that all the houses in Santa Barbara were poisoned by this chemical: "Radon". Mother began buying farm animals for my sister. Sheeps, chickens, guinea pigs. One time my Mom and sister walked up to me on a cafe patio when I was doing a business deal where I was trying to get a guy to front me product based on my solid reputation. That's when I saw my Mom rolling up with a sheep on a leash! I figured it was over, the guy was like "That's your Mom? And you guys have a sheep?" I was like "Don't say anything stupid Hippy! My hands have a mind of their own." And he goes "Oh man that was the coolest thing I ever saw. Come on over whatever you want" That was when I realized that this tee-pee thing could work in my favor. Most people made fun of us but the people that liked it really liked it! So once I got through the anger of being the oldest son in a fatherless family with no control over the families difficulties, I started getting some important work done. Getting out of my home town was a good start. I moved to Hawaii, got chased off (They weren't ready for me.) I moved to Mexico with only 100 dollars. Lived in a Hari Krishna temple as the assistant chef (wrote a movie script) And then came to San Francisco where I found my true love: performing on stage. Now I'm completely at peace with the universe! If they pressed the button right now I'd go happy, I saw cool places, talked to cool people that I loved, and I backed them up when the world tried to fuck with them. I threw a few decent sized rocks in Goliath's eye and whenever I could I laughed. Oh, how I laughed. You guys gotta' come laugh with me! No one is like me. How could they be? With a Bio like that?

About me:.. .. .. .. .. Man, I just love budget travelling! You have to be recourceful and interact with the locals on a cooperational level. I am: Loyal, generous, dedicated to my craft (Understatement) I like to challenge people who seem too sure of themselves (Often that's myself) I love to make audiences laugh. I believe storytelling will be a lost art once people no longer gather around campfires. We must build bonfires on the beach! I think the world is on the verge of great chaos and a period of cleansing. The strong of heart may survive. If not at least we went out smiling knowing we loved and laughed, and did what WE thought was right. I like ice cream.
