i am a professional film, television and commercial actor and filmmaker represented by Collier Talent Agency.
Feature films, short films and television shows include the Lead in the feature film "Far Marfa" (Lone Star Film Festival), the Lead in “Vicky & Sam” (awarded at over 60 film festivals internationally), a Supporting role in "Doonby" (worked with John Schneider from "Dukes of Hazard"), a Guest Star role in ABC’s television show, “My Generation” and a Supporting role in “Happy Voodoo” (Tribeca Film Festival). Major commercial credits include Wendys and Sonic fast food chains.
I am currently narrating an audiobook for an action/thriller novel titled "On The Bayou" by Sean Patrick Bridges. I am also developing a feature screenplay called "Into The Mystic".
For narrative, story-driven films, I also work as a producer and art director and am in development to direct my first film.
The first first film I produced, "El Coyote", was a short version of the feature film, "El Coyote: Horror Has No Borders" produced for $2K. The feature was written by a father & son team whose Executive Producer legacy includes classics such as "The Howling" and "Lawnmower Man" and the short was to be used as an investment teaser.
I most recently produced my second narrative short film titled "Red Winds", for which I spearhead the team responsible for securing $36k for shooting and post production. The film was shot in July, locked in September and is now in the film festival circuit.
