Professor Garcon is a scholar at Acting, When I saw him I quickly recognised him from the Show Time Original tv show "Magic City" I had so many questions and because Professor Garcon experienced it all for the past 5 years and never needed an agent It gave me confedence in my self to see it through by myself. I hope to take further classes in the future unfortunately he lives in Virginia and I live in Florida.
