“Baker is a storyteller, plain and simple. He wears each character like a second skin, playing two, three, four people in the same scene naturally, assuming the physicality of the characters with specificity, while still leaving enough room in his interpretation for the audience to exercise their imagination."

My good friend Tim Roberts and I were asked to sing a song for a charity concert put together through the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I wanted to share that video with you all now. Tim is in San Diego and I am in New York City. We had no choice but to social distance in filming this. Please enjoy and please be safe during these uncertain times. Look out for each other and be kind.
With the whole country shutting down and theaters closing left and right, I wanted to wish everyone well. If you are looking for something to watch while quarantined go to seeka.tv and watch my wife's web series, FabUless. You may spot yours truly in a cameo. Be safe and careful. And remember to wash your hands.

"Baker's performance was honestly among some of the best stage work I have ever seen. Portraying well over a dozen characters with lightening-fast physical and vocal changes, Baker pulls all the stops, shifts into high speed and takes the audience with him for the ride."
