Welcome to my acting website! I am glad that you took some time to take a look at what I have done so far during my Acting Career. I have appeared on Film, Television and The web. I am a SAG/AFTRA Actor born and raised in Los Angeles.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Recreation Administration from California State University at Chico, in Northern California. In college I was Special Teams Player of the Year, Starting at Wide Receiver and as the Punt and Kickoff Returner. I also served my country as a M.I. Soldier for The United States Army Reserves. As a Reservist I was voted Distinguished Soldier of the Cycle during my BootCamp Training in Ft. Leonard, Missouri. I then did my Military Intelligence Training in Arizona earning a Top Military Secret Clearance.. SHHH !
After Earning An Honorable Discharge from The United States Army I focused my skills on being a Personal Trainer, Coach and School Teacher. I Taught Middle School Math and Science for Two years and Taught Science and P.E. at The High School Level for Another year.
I also worked as The Strength and Conditioning Coach for The Football Team for Two Seasons at the High School Level. I currently hold over 10 Certifications in Personal Training ranging from Personal Training Instruction to Teaching Fitness Classes, to Strength and Conditioning Training for Athletes.
I love to coach, exercise and help people understand the importance of exercise in living a long, healthy, disease free life.

Acting became a career for me after doing Stunt Football work on the movie "Starship Troopers" Directed by Paul Verhoeven, who also Directed "Total Recall". The sets were huge and I was able to work directly with the Director and Stunt Coordinator. I was given a Cameo in a scene and I've had the Bug ever since. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120201/fullcredits?ref_=tt_cl_sm#cast
