I was the Mickey Mouse of a Museum.

I was the Mickey Mouse of a historical museum, and it was a really weird gig. Let me tell you about it!

In the summer of 2018 I was looking for work in the Dayton area. One of my friends said that he had worked at a historical park in Dayton, and that they might be hiring. I asked him what kind of work he had done there. “historical theater” he responded. When I was a kid I always admired historical actors, so I talked to his former boss and long story short, got a job working as a historical actor at Carillon park.
