Anyone who has ever met me will tell you that I’m a storyteller at heart. My first passion is acting and I take every opportunity to either be on stage or on set. I was in my first play at the age of five, a musical tribute to Walt Disney, and I’ve been hooked ever since.
Growing up relatively poor in Arkansas as a “latch-key” kid television and movies were more than entertainment to me, they were a necessary escape from reality and were as important as air and water to me. The theatres, both movie and playhouses, were hallowed ground and extremely sacred to me; have to admit that they still are to this day.
My uncle Chuck was always in a production of some type and seeing him on stage changed my life. He also made home movies and even made a few with me in them when I was little. So we can all blame him for exposing me to the “acting bug” that has consumed my life since.
While I am not yet where I want to be in my career I have been able to work consistently as a performer for the past several years for which I know I am blessed and fortunate. I have spent years studying the craft of acting and am a proud graduate of the prestigious American Academy Of Dramatic Arts two year conservatory in Los Angeles.
My favorite lead roles so far have been as “Man” in The Dragon Play by Jenny Connell Davis, “Teddy” in When You Comin’ Back Red Ryder by Mark Medoff, and “White” in The Sunset Limited by Cormac McCarthy.
I have written a one person show entitled A Fathers Love and was fortunate to have performed it at The Geffen Playhouse and in various theaters in Los Angeles. I I feel extremely honored to have performed two separate shows at the Geffen Playhouse and at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles .
