About Bruce

I am a critically acclaimed New York stage actor for the Off-Broadway show "Man Enough" (1985) where I played a mentally handicapped eighteen year old going off to an institute. I also have done professional voice over work for Bantam Books/Random House in New York (Audio interpretation of Louis L' Amor's "A Trail to the West") Link: to audio and other reels - https://www.stage32.com/profile/503163/reel. And, I have produced and voice acted on several audio books for a metaphysical company in Portland, OR.

Acting: Lead role in short film (dark comedy) "4 or More" by Alex Hall, Gin & Tonic Films http://www.ginandtonicfilms.com/ (released 2017). Lead role in "The Burden of Choice" a short film about a young man remembering his grandfathers advice (GRANDPA JIM) Lead role as the DOCTOR in "Dehypnotized" a short 'art' film made by Bruce. Lead in "Panorama" a short about a TEACHER advising a student that is getting bullied. And, "Deep Blue Something" from Riot Studios in Austin. Three Doritos spec commercials (Oct., 2015).

As a screenwriter/filmmaker I have one produced short film to my credit -- "Dehypnotized" 2015 (writer, director, actor, producer, music, etc.) . It can be seen for free at: https://youtu.be/Qy7jFS17czg

Screenplays and teleplays:
BUD UGLY (sitcom pilot)

DEHYPNOTIZED (produced short)
OPPOSITES OF A FEATHER (spec short).

I made it to the second round at the Austin Film Festival's 2015 screenplay contest with my short screenplay "Disinhibition". Not a winner, but at least I beat out 7,333 other scripts to get to this level.

Right now I am focused on acting and writing.
