Well, back in October I was contacted by Food Netwrk Challenge asking me if I was interested in being on the show. After going through the process of sending in pictures of my cakes, of myself and a list of my credenttials, they asked for a phone interview. I spoke to a really nice woman for about an hour and I guess she liked me because she asked me to do a video audition.

I asked her if I should be decorating a cake in the video and show my other work and she said, "No, do something to stand apart. Show us your personality and sense of humor." So, below is a link to my very odd audition tape.

I realize the type is backwards (I said it was odd). It is a take off on the Old Spice commercials with Isaiah Mustafa.

BTW, I loved Andrea Bergin's video. It was heart felt and wonderful, but I went in an entirely different direction.

Let me know what you think.
