I've been modeling since the age of 18 and still very open to that artistic expression, but my real passions lie in Acting, Screen Play Writing, Poetry, Stage Performance and Film Production.
My first Short Film ("Life By Numbers" produced through my Performing Arts Troupe - Bohemian Soul Revival) made successful premiers in Chicago and Montreal, with much more to come.
The following is 'Me'... Written in 1st person 'cause I'm neato like that......
A former bodyguard for world-famous musicians and actors.
Bouncer at seedy nightclubs, bars and illicit after-hour dens.
Boxer and no-holds-barred fighter.
Founder and CEO of two successful organizations.
Featured performer and lecturer at major international institutions in Canada, the United States, Ireland, Sweden, Italy, Australia, New Zealand and the Czech Republic.
Poet and author.
Jamie Astrid’s very existence is a literal duality; the rough exterior of a menacing jungle cat before its kill, the supple interior of an artisan, humanitarian and intellect whose care for humankind sits limitlessly atop his priorities.
Jamie’s fascination with words dates to his childhood when he realized the power a well-constructed passage can have on its readers. Compelling them to emote; forcing them to act.
His philosophy on life, although as complex, intricate, passionate and riddled with mystery as the man is himself, can be summarized by the title of his first published poem…
The epic characterized by his landmark decree for how we should all opt to exist:
The Desire to Pursue and Conviction to Risk
A gifted Orator (so described due to his pure disdain for the word ‘speaker’) believes that writing and narration are the two most moving forms of communicative art that have become diluted and unappreciated in modern society.
As with everything else in his life, he serves to confound the expectations we all may have with respect to his craft.
