THE UNLIKELY FLORIST
Originally from New Zealand, Spencer Falls is the son of an orchardist and a fine artist. His parents, John and Leslie, instilled in him an appreciation for creativity and natural beauty. It was his love for adventure that brought him to the States some 10 years ago. Lake Tahoe was his first port of call, where Spencer pursued the dream of becoming a pro snowboarder. A few years and a few injuries later, he made his way across the country to Maine, where the intensity of working as a lobster fisherman fed the daredevil inside him. That chapter ran its course and it was time to return to the warm weather of the west coast, more specifically Los Angeles. Spencer embarked on yet another challenging career, acting. Much like any other acting career, Spencer experienced both peaks and valleys. In one of those valleys he began to look for creative expression in another medium: floristry. It was there, in that ironic little spot, that he landed the biggest gig of his acting career. The role, The Unlikely Florist - An outlaw florist who sells flowers from a 1980s VW Van. He wears a green fedora and often a pair light tinted glasses. His goal: To bring flowers to the people.
