Local actor, model and motivational speaker Lou Pimber will speak Feb. 24 at Pima Community College’s Downtown Campus before an audience of first-generation college students.
Pimber began acting a few years ago and quickly became the face of the Southwest, according to his IMDb Mini Biography. He has become a sought after youth motivational speaker and movie fight/weapons choreographer. He has appeared in more than 20 films and co-wrote and executive-produced the award-winning short film “Duress.” He acted in and associate produced the feature film “Wayward Pilgrim.”
Pimber is most often recognized for his role on the hit television series “Breaking Bad.” Lou cut his acting teeth during an extensive law enforcement career when he conducted narcotics investigations as an undercover member of the elite HIDTA drug task force, which operates under the Executive Office of the President of the United States, Office of National Drug Control Policy.
Pimber’s motivational philosophy is “with the right preparation and just the right timing, we create our own luck.”
Pimber is volunteering his time to speak to students in the TRIO Upward Bound program. TRIO Upward Bound is a federally funded college prep program designed to serve low-income, first-generation college students. Pima has Upward Bound Programs at the Desert Vista, Downtown, East and Northwest campuses.
The event isn’t open to the public because of space considerations.
