Dear Reader,   

My adventures in the film trade started in December 2010 when, on my first day on a film set, I died.  It's been downhill ever since. 

Before that moment, I had, amongst other things, frittered away my time in business, finagled an M.A. in English Literature, wrote poetry, songs and short stories, acted in theatre, and performed as a standup comic, MC and lead singer/front man in R&B bands. 

Since then, I've been a preacher and teacher, a crazy, a drunk, a skunk, a vampire and cowboy and a lonely guy from another planet.  I've worked on nearly 200 projects, acting in shorts, features, music videos and TV series, including the current hit show 'The Good Doctor'; I've voiced PSAs, radio plays, Sci-Fi games, industrial projects and commercials.  

I've auditioned for a principal role playing opposite Robert De Niro.  And one with Grumpy Cat.  And I've been in a comic improvised TV commercial with William Shatner.  Fazers on stun!  And a washed-up rock n'roller rock n'rollin' with an 18 year groupie in Jason Alexander's series 'Hit The Road'  OK, OK, yes it's a comedy...   

British-born, based in Vancouver, I've been privileged to be training for 4 years with Deb Podowski at Austin-Tuck http://austintuckstudios.com/ and am delighted to be represented by Corey Menzies at KC Talent.

Thanks for reading!
