My ongoing desire is to be involved in great, artistically driven projects. Dramatic shadows, emotionally charged scenes, projects that speak loudly and passionately! Please read my bio before adding me.
"Love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without. If you don't start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who'll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I'm not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you'll come back. Because, the truth is there is no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love - well, you haven't lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived."
"The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." Theodore Roosevelt

I was born in Carthage, Texas, and raised just a stone's throw away in Longview. Yepâ¦ King Ranch horses, Akita dogs, lush pine tree forests andâ¦ A constant searching both within and without. I floundered for the first part of my life and tried on many different hats, few of which fit.
I joined the U.S. Army in 1995 and separated in 2001. Hard timesâ¦ Very good times often are. After, I moved on to Miami, Florida and started my own business. But, before long the love of acting and distaste for âbusinessâ prompted me to seek roles in local projects. Iâve been quite lucky to have been included in several critically acclaimed film festival and art house ventures, and then landed a role in the underground feature film "American Skin II" directed by Thomas Griffith. The role as reluctant killer Buddy Logan garnered excellent reviews on the indie circuit. I took the advice of my acting coach and left Florida for Hollywood where I quickly landed parts in HBO's "Deadwood" and Nu-Lite Film's "Color of the Cross."
My time is divided among so many different pursuits. Iâm an avid horse enthusiast and I work with problem horses quite often using techniques to gentle and quiet the stormy personalities of some great ponies. And, just to mention, Iâve competed in several local bull riding competitions back in Texas, and though I do my best I have to admit that so far, the bulls have usually won. Also, I have a brown belt in Isshinryu karate, Private Pilotâs license and when I can afford it, I work on the helicopter rating.
Currently.. Creating a new compilation of romantic writings from over the years. "Love Letter's" is an assortment of letters devoted to love, passion, devotion, longing and sex. Sometimes it inflames, sometimes titillates and sometimes it brings tears but, my hope is that it will cause you to reach out for your lover's hand...
I'm a professional stuntman and you can catch me in several episodes of "Deadliest Warrior."
I've been a Youth Counselor for the American Cancer Society's Camp Reach 4 the Sky. (CR4TS is a summer camp for kids who have been diagnosed/going through treatment/ or are living with the effects of cancer) for the past 5 years, however... THIS year I'm developing an equine jousting/medieval show with CR4TS in mind and it's specifically tailored to children with disabilities. We'll be performing this summer! Stay tuned folks, 2010 is going to be a banner year!
Also Iâm quite passionately involved with Hearts of Life Animal Rescue organization in Sulphur Springs, Texas.
I sing both country and some Italian, dance, fight, smell roses, grow bonsai and love a good red wine. I have never seen a woman who wasn't fascinating in some way and I live with some regret which makes me a much better man. I do cry at romantic/sappy movies and blame it on popcorn salt. Good times! And please, if you request to be my friend, mention that you read this. Then, I'll happily add you.. Then, I'll know that you took a little extra time to find out who I am and how I look at the world. Then, we can share ideas, success, and work together to create some lovely images that may just last forever!
