CURRENT STATUS: UnEmployed. OUT OF UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE, NEED FULL TIME JOB AS SOON AS POSSIBLE PLEASE, meanwhile will accept temp and part time SIGNED UP WITH CULINARY 226, waiting list for STAGEHANDS 720, talked with BARTENDERS 165 suggested Apprentice Bartender + union training classes, I have only beer & wine & soda experience (certificate in Mixology 2 week 1995 never used).

RECENT EXPERIENCE: using my stage name ARCHURE ® 9 Years Photographer: in major hotel casino Theaters: Harrah's Tropicana IP Stratosphere Excalibur NYNY Luxor MGM Mirage Caesars Flamingo TI Mandalay Bay Aria Ballys Palazzo Planet Hollywood Palms LVH, for nearly 10 years, photograph before the show, sell afterwards. It used to pay more

HOTEL & CULINARY EXPERIENCE 10 years ago see below USA Flag

Why I am so desperate. Explanation: While out of work for a 10 day Cirque break July 2013 (theater Photographer) I filed for and got Unemployment, and even back to work was able to collect $100 more per week due to reduced hours, lesser paying assignments, then layoff Dec 30th, and now April 26th out of Unemployment money, and can not refile till July. There is no extended unemployment, that was only up to a specific date and does not include me. With Liberty and Justice for All, except me. And of course I would rather work, and was working for nearly 10 years at Cashman, 2004 19k - 2005 31k - 2006 41k - 2007 46k - 2008 53k - 2009 34k - 2010 28k - 2011 24k - 2012 23k - 2013 19k (22k with unemployment) trying to get all the photo work I could, but others got the prefered assignments, I got bottom of the barrel, even though I pulled lots of money and helped train other excellent money making photographers. For Photo people, Mystere is not so good in that the patrons leave towards the casino, like a stampede that can not stop, and they don't even bother to turn around in the fast moving crowd to look back over their shoulders and say "oh thats right, my photos", other than that it was an Honor to be at Mystere. And I am a person of Honor, thanks to the Reagans (family friends, attended all my birthday parties as a kid) who taught me all about Honor (note my education, good GPA). I am broke, I don't have a TV, and I missed the Cromwell Job Faire (and I Crom excellently), and the SLS events if any? but am applying now, all over town


GOALS: While my Short Term goal is most any (reasonable) Full Time Job, Any Shift; I would like to eventually aim towards Sound Tech, Musician, Beverage Manager or Bartender (due to fractures in my spine and hip, I look big and healthy, but should not lift heavy things), or dealing with the public after 9 years and 8 months of Casino Theater Photographer, lots of dealing with people, which I enjoy. I continually doubled as an Information Booth Specialist at the photo table and in the halls people would ask questions, others would see me answer, and people would line up. 9 yrs 8 mo Information Booth Specialist Manager



THE PAST 10 YEARS Photographer: 4/2004 till 12/2013: 9 years and 8 months experience with Cashman Photo(s) as a hotel casino theater Photographer all over town, experience with customers and sales (of my own volition, when I got the job I went to UNLV Library stack and searched the whole wall of photos books for poses etc, and purchased at Rebel Books UNLV used books text book on Photography. Interested in taking classes for better jobs, and also have considerable education in technology electronics and robotics and computer information management (business science division, use of software), and music; 61 units Saddleback College Mission Viejo CA (and 195 credits ITT trade college accredited). A bio-feed back expert said I have a strong Alpha (strong in "Alpha Waves") = calm and pleasant person (not agitated, most of the time, and get over it quicker)

CURRENT REQUIRED CARDS
April 16, 2014 UPDATE: I now have new cards
HEALTH CARD, LOCAL 226 ALCOHOL CARD, and 226 CARD: classified as Host/Cashier and Runner/Bus experience with all four
I should not be doing heavy lifting (NO Convention Porter please), people see me and say Big Guy Lift, and I used to be a Stock Boy at Robinsons Glendale CA move pallets and unload trucks and I used to work out, but now for medical reasons, I am healthy but can not lift (physical damage). However, my Blood Pressure is always excellent for quite a few years now, on file with Dr Kathleen Smith MD http://ultimateumedical.com/ I am a nutritional hobbyist (61 units other things) and eat health foods, low glycemic, high fiber, reasonable protein, vitamins and minerals, 5-HTP 100 mg neurotransmitters for more depth of thought and less confusion, over the counter Lithium for stability (sodium and potassium in foods as well), lots of water. I sometimes appear slower but get the job done better and quicker. Due to my years as a Photographer, I am in the habit of SMILING and making quick friends with customers, 9 years of being the Information Specialist (Photographer getting ready to sell, set up at table, everyone wants to know where is the Volcano? the Pyramid? the Pirate Show? the Quiest Way OUTA HERE (with panic in their eyes), and every where I go thru the casinos, always the friendly person helping people) Smile

1977 Sams Family Restaurant, San Rafael CA, WAITER

1977 Wendy's Watsonville CA, MANAGER TRAINEE for San Francisco
Actual duties: Fry Cook, prep, clean up, in Watsonville CA Wendy's, both owned by Terry Bradshaw (Football Hall of Fame). I was told I would be a "Manager in training" for 1st Wendy's San Francisco store, (but never worked at SF store, only Watsonville). I worked 5 am to 1 am, Salary, (worked out to less than min wage). Resigned: long hours 20 hrs per day, duties did not include anything managerial, it was just a cheap way of getting low pay work, I reminded manager Bill Hawley (and my name is William Christopher Holley), that I was Manager in training, and he told me I would be "Manager of the French Fries" (and told the other manager in training he would be "Manager of busing the tables"). We were provided with a nice place to stay (shared), a luxury place on the beach (I lived 2 counties to the north in Marin), but was only allowed 4 hours sleep (strange). Pardon my resignation. (strange experience). It was the only job I could get (it was that or sell large kitchen knifes door to door, which I would not do, too threatening, both jobs found thru the College of Marin job placement). It was after this series of nightmares and lack of reasonable employment that I reluctantly left Marin and moved to L.A. CA. working briefly as a Waiter at Sam's Family Restaurant in Marin just before I left (they wanted me to wash dishes when the dishwasher walked out, but was primarily a waiter).

My grandfather Ted was a top man (Best Boy Electric/Electrical Engineer) at RKO, Paramount, and Desilu Studios, at Gower, Melrose, and Van Ness. This photo of Ted riding a bicycle on the west end of the lot, the North side of the west end (I think ??? the background sets are Gun Smoke on the left? and the Untouchables on the right?). He was best friends with Ronald Reagan, and nearly married Nancy himself. The Reagans used to come to my birthday parties every year. I took this photo



Ted's favorite star was Ann Southern, they were good friends. I took this photo

My grandfather Ted along with, I think its Debbie Reynolds? (there was a video I saw on it, wish I had it) They were settling a Union Dispute, and they filmed it. She was not getting along with the crew, lights, camera, sound; but they settled in peace and tieing the knot in the rope as a symbolic gesture (sounds like a Charles Chaplin plan). My grandfather was big in the Union there and helped start the Stagehands Union here. My mother Lyda may have been in the Bartenders Union. I have been with the Culinary and Bartenders and Musicians Unions. Musicians Union when I got here in 1995, and I may have been a member around 1964? when I was 11 years old, I played Trombone and remember filling here briefly, easy and fun (but have not played trombone for years since, the horns in my music are MIDI sounds, really a guitar that sounds like flute, sitar, violin, piano, but I can only play one track at a time. I do have Asian sounds, perhaps I could play in a lounge in the pre-dawn?



My mom Lyda in Stalag 17 (3rd lady from the left (or 2.5)



My mom Lyda in Stalag 17



Ted's other best friend was Vince Edwards who played Ben Casey on the Ben Casey show. My grandfather took this photo of Vince Edwards and I.

This is a photo of me and Bill Bixby (Bill Bixby and I) on the set of My Favorite Martian.

Bill Bixby took this photo of me (on left), Ray Walston (center)

I took this photo of Lucielle Ball on the set of The Lucy Show.
