In brief, my experiences started with moving around at a young age, beginning in Pennsylvania to Maryland to Georgia, and to college in Kansas. My learning experiences included trips to foreign countries as a teenager (where I learned to appreciate the simple things in life). In addition I’ve worked with a variety of people from different social, intellectual and economic backgrounds.
One memorable experience would probably be basic military training where the average age was 17 – 25, and I was 37. This put me in a father-figure status. It was there that I met all types of persons from all types of backgrounds and beliefs and with all types of issues. In this environment I became a quiet leader, gradually and positively influencing young people to be true to themselves, avoid negative short cuts, and strive to be the best they can be.
Not too long after returning from Afghanistan my love for acting was renewed. In July 2011 I took part in the AMTC program at Gaylord Palms Resort in Orlando, FL doing different showcases and meeting a lot of agents under one roof. This program was a great introduction for me into the acting industry.
Since then I've been taking classes, reading, going to auditions, improv, writing and directing. There is always so much more to learn.
