Oz Irwin - Actor (Puddin')
At the age of 3, Oz was intrigued by 3 things. Gardening, cooking and the French horn. After taking a cooking class he thought it'd be mighty fun to host a cooking show for families. That genesis of an idea then flourished into "Sit Down. Eat Up" - the pilot was shot in the Chicago area with another family when he was 5 years old. That same year he finally began studying the French horn. A year later and his interest had turned to fishing so he began hosting his fishing escapades around the Los Angeles area. The web series was called "Fishin' In the City with Oz." He fished everywhere from the Los Angeles River to Echo Park Lake to the Griffith Park fountain. He was soon to add a keen knowledge of music and lyrics including everything from Frank Sinatra to Johnny Cash to Pharrell. Then he began his study of the cello.
