Wayne (class of 1970) started his brief career in front of the cameras at a very young age. While attending Foothills Junior High School, Wayne guest starred in one of the more memorable episodes on the 60’s sitcom, My Favorite Martian, in the role of Ray Walston’s nephew, Andromeda. The episode entitled “When You Get Back To Mars, Are You Going To Get It” aired February 27, 1966. Shortly after that, Wayne landed a small part in the 1967 classic The Graduate. Wayne was featured in the hotel party scene. In addition, Wayne landed small roles in the films Hawaii and The Park. Wayne also appeared in numerous commercials and the short-lived TV series Mickey, starring Mickey Rooney.


During his time at AHS, Wayne starred in the Arcadia High production of How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. Wayne played the role of J.P. Finch. Wayne was active in Senior Jesters, Stage Crew and Road Show at AHS. After graduating from AHS, Wayne formed a theater company that rented AHS and Temple City High stages and over the course of the next twenty years directed, produced, wrote and acted in theatrical productions with companies run by Wayne. During that time he also directed summer workshops at USC and directed two plays at Cal State Northridge.


In 1986, Wayne started teaching part time to help build his private theater class base and found out that he loved teaching! He began teaching full time in 1994 at Carlmont High in Belmont, California. He moved to San Dimas High in 1997 to be closer to home and since 2000 has been at Glendora High. Wayne tells us that; “I love it at GHS and plan to stay until retirement.”


Wayne and his wife, Laura, were married in 1994 and have seven cats!
