Sergio-Ristie-10932-6Sergio Ristie is a successful actor and musician living in Los Angeles, California. Sergio is focused on helping others by being a motivational speaker on topics such as childhood obesity, health, and other issues concerning the health of children.

Earlier in his acting career, Sergio was very much interested in the field of entertainment. Having found his path, the stars seemed to align and Sergio Ristie began connecting with the right people at the right time. At 23 years old, he started his first acting job on the Christopher Lloyd TV series Deadly Games. He followed this performance with appearances in other notable films and series including The Prince starring Billy Dee Williams, the 90’s hit Pacific Blue and the independent short No Experience Necessary. In 2002, Sergio played King Neptune in SpongeBob SquarePants and followed that role up with a part in the TV pilot “Vegas Dick,” later known as just “Vegas.”

Outside of acting, Sergio Ristie has been heavily involved in improving others’ lives and creating a difference in his community by helping children grow into successful and effectives members of society. Kidz N Funk is Sergio Ristie’s project to educate, motivate and inspire kids. What are the main goals? To motivate people to be healthy through music. To teach them from a young age to be passionate about what they love and to spark that interest, whatever it may be. By keeping the energy extremely high and giving 110% during each and every performance, Ristie The Band gets people up and moving.

Kids often find themselves unmotivated, but this doesn’t need to be the case because anything can motivate them. Music just happens to be one very effective way. There may be too many ways in which children can be stagnant these days, with an endless number of video games to play and television shows to watch, but by sparking their interest and providing a solid role model, one can encourage them to get up and out. Motivation quickly turns into self motivation when one is following his or her own passion.

When Sergio is not on set, on a stage performing, or at a school providing motivational talks, you can usually find him with his friends and family enjoying the California lifestyle. If you would like to learn more about Sergio, you can follow him on the social links found below.
