Acting since I was 10 years old
Majored in Musical Theatre in HS
Studied with Broadway Legends at Broadway Theatre Project.
Moved to NYC thinking theatre was my way
Was Entertainment Director of The Jekyll and Hyde Club and Pub
Taught at The Children's Acting Academy while attending Marymount Manhattan College
Gave up and moved back to FL while preparing to move to LA to try again.
Ended up in FL for 2 years. Worked with Club Med as Entertainment Consultant and did 7 months of Musical at an Equity Dinner Theatre.
Moved to LA... did not act for 4 years. Worked in every aspect of film and TV production. Was homeless for 10 months over the course of a year and a half.
Started acting again... stage, shorts and web stuff.
Taught myself how to edit... started EncoreDemos.com. Got tired of cutting bad footage so I started ProduceYourReel.com. Started an online network on FB called Actors Supporting Actors (over 1,200 members). From that group of actors they wanted to get active... started ActionGroupLA. Shoot a project or two once a month. Continued acting at the same time in multiple musicals including a show with the legendary National Lampoon.
Producing/Editing/Directing is pulling me hard in their direction so I started http://www.OddDogPictures.com
