I was raised outside of Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. After completing my university studies in Florida, I moved to Tokyo where I acted in T.V. commercials & industrial films, as well as did commercial modelling. Before moving to the Amsterdam area, I lived and worked in New York City (banker), London, and Dubai. I studied the Strasberg Technique with Marcia Haufrecht in New York City and with Andre Landzaat in Amsterdam, both life-time members of Actor’s Studio.
