Being humble is a unique feature when you’re in this industry, so I would first like to say, thank you for taking the time to visit and review my ever expanding portfolio – I do appreciate it. If you like what you see, send me a note; I may be interested in working with you for trade or otherwise.
I was fortunate to have grown up in a small town called Sun Valley in Southern California. As a young man, I have always been told that modeling should be an option for me. As I grew older, I began to explore the option and have experience some great successes and disappointments. Life is about learning how to balance the two.
As I continue to grow and learn more about myself and the industry, I decided to branch out into acting, dancing, wardrobe styling and an on-set assistant. All of these roles add to my experience, knowledge, and love for the industry, respectively.
Most of my inspiration comes from my friends and those who continue to encourage me daily – thank you! My other inspirations are professionals in the industry that I have had the good fortune of encountering over the years. It's a beautiful thing to see someone being passionate about what they do; it helps to fuel my every growing passion and devotion to continue on this track and to help others, the best I can, when I can.
Experience and some Work History:
Modeling and working as an assistant at make-up schools like M.U.D. (Make-Up Designory) in Burbank, California, has all but generated more excitement and interest for me. Adding to my experience modeling for Tony & Guy Hair Academy, Modeling in Fashion Shows with Danielle Kelly, to producing a Fashion Show makes me a well rounded and active person in the industry, or so I’ve been told.
I am hands-on producer. I am able to delegate, as such an endeavor takes a lot of time and patience, but as a perfectionist, I took an active role in all of the major components, such as: scouting the models, walk training and couching, choosing the music, and wardrobe selection. Undoubtedly, this was intense, stressful, and most of all and exciting. It showed, We had fun!
I have and continue to do Extra work on movies, television, and commercials. I have found that my ability to learn by watching, assimilating, and understanding how all the components work, while being active as an Extra has been unparalleled. Extra work is not above me. Everyone should experience this aspect of the business. You’ll get to speak and interact with casting agents, cast members, producers, actors, and other professionals based on your ability to follow instructions and show your dependability and passion as a professional. It goes without saying that you often will make strong friendships and bonds with other Extras who are on similar paths in the industry. It’s all about who you know!
My most recent project was assisting with the casting, and auditions for Pirates of the Caribbean 4 in Hawaii.
In the end, I am serious about my craft and my pursuit of continued success in this industry. I am ambitious by nature and do know how to be happy without paying my dues through hard-work and persistence.
