|Occupation||Film, television actor|
When Tadao is not working as an actor, he is actively involved in science fiction fandom. Tadao can regularly be found at the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society clubhouse in North Hollywood during meetings and/or events. He is also regularly a staff member at many fan-run conventions, including Loscon, Gallifrey One, Anime Los Angeles, DemiCon, plus many Worldcons and Westercons. He was the Toastmaster at BayCon 2010. and Fan Guest of Honor in 2011 at Kansas City's ConQuesT 42; he will serve as Toastmaster as ConQuesT 45 in 2014.
His acting resume gives little credit to his attractiveness as a science fiction personality. As an entertainer moving through the social landscape of nerddom he reveals the many aspects of his acting personas. Many of these have yet to be recorded to film. As an actor who is frequently not in loan, his stories about gaining meaningful employment are an asset to many social settings.
As a comedic instructor he takes time with each individual in his seminars, to ensure there are upbeat critiques on timing, material, and delivery.
