Many people have said to me, “They broke the mold when they made you.” My work ethic, determination, positivity, knowledge and skill set means always putting forth the greatest effort to ensure a project is done well and done right.
MOM Raised Me Right
I’m the youngest of five siblings, raised on a farm with an appreciation for a hard day’s work and a home-cooked meal. We grew what we ate, left nothing to waste, and understood the satisfaction of a job done right. I’m a lover of dogs, animals, science, nature, astronomy, oceans, family, friends and a breathtaking sunrise.
Duty and Honor
I have spent my adult life serving my country and my community. I joined the military at a young age and enjoyed a long career in public service. It engrained in me integrity, work ethic, and responsibility, and taught me to always do the right thing, at the right time, for the right reason.
My life’s story seemed unfinished until I met my marvelous wife and with her, we’ve found all the purpose our lives need in our two beautiful children. We would move mountains for them. For us, heaven is not a place in the clouds, it is here, sharing wonderful times and making memories to last.
my Creative Marathon
They say, “Success is not a sprint, it’s a marathon.” There has always been a reserved side to me that is creative and humorous. After retiring from public service, I explored the performing arts. In a few short years I’ve worked on some incredible projects, connected with amazing people, and received recognition from industry authorities.
DIY home studio
I’ve always been handy with tools, so knocking down a wall and building a home studio was a snap. The challenge was learning how the get the most out of it, but the soldier in me never backs down from a challenge.
Agents, Awards, and a Scholarship
With only two years of training under my belt, I signed with what would be the first of many agents, took home one of the industry’s highest honors from the Society of Voice Arts and Sciences (SOVAS), and received a full scholarship to the Stella Adler Academy of Acting.
Continued working hard to perfect my craft, and as a result, joined two prestigious acting unions; ACTRA and EQUITY UK. In less than four years, I went from relative obscurity to being an award-winning industry professional.
More Projects, More Recognition, More Creative Fun
They say if you’re passionate about what you’re doing, the world will take notice. Two more nominations and two more awards this year, giving me more opportunities to grow, create, share, and be thankful.
