About Me

I tell stories.

Enamored with the power of words and storytelling since childhood, my path towards becoming an actor was anything but traditional. However, an in-class assignment in the sixth grade to create a commercial, a yearning to become a polished public speaker, a 1988 appearance by Michael J. Fox on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, and a fraternity brother’s bold move to Los Angeles in the early 90’s to pursue a career as an actor all served as benchmarks that spoke to me subliminally. Collectively, it all manifested at age 42 when I was blessed to film my first commercial. A dearth of commercial activity a few years later led to a foray into community theatre and it was in that space, courtesy of great scripts, casts, and directors that I began to really blossom as an actor. Supplemental training and relationships led to work in industrials (corporate videos), live events, and as a print model and a voice actor. A veteran background actor of several dozen network TV shows, serendipity showed up in February 2015 when I was recast from a background actor to be the body double and stand-in for Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding, Jr. Eligible to join SAG-AFTRA shortly thereafter, I was blessed to join in January 2020 and booked my first network TV co-star role a few weeks later. In March 2021, I was blessed to book and film my first commercials since joining SAG-AFTRA, three spots for industry-leading life insurance company Colonial Penn.
