I am an actor first. I am also an editor and advice columnist. I I have consulted for tv shows, execs, authors, and publications.
I studied with acting coaches such as Larry Moss, Howard Fine, Robert Carnige, and Bobbie Chance. Began acting in 1997, and I have had the pleasure to work in many aspects of film and tv. I worked at NBC daytime on Sunset Beach from 97 to the end of 00.
I also thank my cousin George for taking me under his wings and guideing my career.
I am a hometown hero to some, the funny dorky guy to others, and genuine to all. I had a near death experience from flat lining for about a min and a half. I lost everything to gain it all, and now I am onto of my world.
The one thing in life that is a certain is uncertainty.. I value & treasure everyday as though it is the last. I have the smile of Tom Cruise, the passion of Marlon Brando, and the heart of Billy Bob Thornton.
