A seasoned Character Actor w/ 20+ Years Experience on Stage, Screen & the Tele!
I performed for six years with a small Shakespearean Acting Troupe in the Los Angeles area, where I learned the basics of my craft & stage combat. In addition, I've studied with coaches that have been touted as some of the contemporary greats, Kate McGregor-Stewert, Richard Lane, Robert Hamilton, Lacey Altwine, Mike Mahaffey, June Chandler, Nancy Wolfson, The Actors Studio, L.A. Fight Academy, and A.I.A. Studios.
I'm comfortable doing Period & Contemporary projects, and I fit well into the skins of the mysterious Hit-man, quirky Detective, stoic Rancher, and the put-upon Best Friend, not to mention the doting Husband & Father. Just recently, I've been working as an Actor &/or Stunt Gaffer/man &/or Producer &/or Writer on several Indy Projects; 'Net series: "THE HUNTED: SLAYERS INC." (reality horror series): Movies: "VIRTUALLY HEROES" (action/comedy), "SPEED DATING" (comedy), "BACKLIGHT" (supernatural-romantic dramedy), "LURE" (thriller), "HIRED GUN" (action), "SLICES: The Range segment" (horror), "GUNPLAY" (contemporary western), "FOUR QUEENS & A JOKER" (comedy).
As a member of the Screen Actors Guild, A.F.T.R.A.., A.E.A., and the National League of S.A.G. Stunt Performers, My repertoire of skills has been described by some as remarkable, I've expertise in the use of period to contemporary firearms, S.A.F.D. training, I'm a weapons & riding coach, technical adviser, I have military training, been a working wrangler, I'm Emergency 1st Aid Instructor, and I'm in the process of getting Nationally certified as an E.M.T.-I.
