via Tampa (a large tropical metropolis that nearly saw the untimely demise of his will to live,) who moved to LA three years ago to make an autobiographical documentary about his retirement tour from pro wrestling and whatever the next exciting chapter of his life turned out to be. (The exciting six-episode TV series he's written and is currently funding at LAFights.com.)

Was there a particular reason you chose LA ?
I'd always wanted to live here but never thought I could afford to. Funding the documentary on Kickstarter allowed me to take the jump and I discovered I actually couldn't have afforded not to.
What one thing do you miss from home?My Mum and Dad. Awwww. Shit, that's two.
What do you find the biggest difference is living here versus Tampa/Staplehurst?A variety of things to do / median age range (Tampa.) The color of people's teeth, other than that's it's near identical. (Staplehurst.)


Do you have a hidden gem in LA that you want to share with us?Priscilla's Coffee in Toluca Lake. Tito's Tacos in Culver City. No so hidden, but gem-like nonetheless.

What would you suggest to others who are thinking about making the move here ?
Like I learned in Scouts - be prepared. If you have neither a lot of money or friends here get good at making either, but preferably both, or be prepared to steal or beg.


If your life was a TV show what song would be the theme tune ?
Why Does It Always Rain On Me? - Travis.
