Hollywood Bandy's Modeling Jobs, Acting Auditions and Additional Experience
I am a published author(since 2004)I am published in the poetry book 'Silent Journey' by: International House of Poetry. I have 2 published novels By: Bookstand publishing, ['TWISTED. The impossible enemy is the one you can't even see' and 'FROM SCRATCH. A Hitman's Life and Legacy'(Which you may have heard my interview on the Jack Drucker radio show WTAN/Tampa,Fla. in Aug. 2010]} I have a non-fiction book to be released in 2013 titled: 'RUNNING TO MILEY. A True Story of Inspiration'(it's a true story about Miley Cyrus)...I have a 2nd degree black-belt in Hapkido(Korean art)With a mix of Aikido(Japanese art) thrown-in. I was a kick-boxer(American)from 1983-to-1990. My main profession is being a Bouncer. I was from 1986-thru-1996 and again from 2010-thru-2011. The reason for the gap of time? I am also a convicted Federal Bank Robber(1997-thru-June 30th,2009). I made the front page of news papers in 2010 for running the Country Music Marathon(Nashville,Tenn.)because I ran it only 5-weeks after being run-over by a Mustang(the car)while I was on my motorcycle(a 2001 Harley Sportster). The car hit me head-on,and broke my neck in 3-places,tore 3-of-the-4 main ligaments in my right knee,tore my right shoulder out of the socket,broke my right ankle,and a metal rod had to be placed in my right-hip and fastened with 6-stainless-steel screws. 5-weeks after the accident,with 3-major surgeries under my belt---I ran 13-miles they(the doctors)said I could never make. The front page news was shown on the Tonight Show by Jay Leno...I am also a long-time vocalist for 80's rock(hair)bands,and rappers...I am very much pursuing an acting career to add to my music and author resume,to be a successful triple-threat in the entertainment industry...If you give me a chance,I believe you'll find me to be intriguing,hard-working,and very charismatic...I go by my Author name of Hollywood,because that's how my fans recognize me(and I have over 8,000 of them so far,and counting). I was given this nick-name when I was very young and have been stuck with-it ever since. Most people have never heard of Michael Bandy,but,in many circles(South Cal' from the 80's-to-Panama City bch,Fla. and Tennessee in the 90's)you can mention 'Hollywood' and there's a better than average chance that someone remembers me well...
