I was born and raised in Buffalo, NY. While in High school I was apprenticed as a professional Mime for about 2 years, where I did events such as grand openings for stores, Birthday parties, and hired for parades and other such street events. I could ride a unicycle, juggle, simple magic tricks, and balloon animals. After high school I moved to Tempe, AZ, where I was going to school for business. While I was doing that I started singing in a band. We had a 4 year run, the core members, the guitarist Kipp McLeod and I, co-composed over 20 songs which we performed in Phoenix and surrounding areas. I had an opportunity to move out to LA after the band broke up. After arriving here in Pasadena, I have been a bartender while pursuing my modeling/acting/music career in the entertainment industry. At first I started a duet acoustic band where I was singer and songwriter, and I performed with an extremely talented guitarist. That lasted about 2 years and family obligations pulled him away from touring L.A. I decided to expand my horizons beyond just music and came across a couple of TFCD photo shoot opportunities from a student at the Santa Barbara school of photography, with Nathan Dorn. I have about 4 sessions under my belt right now, and am looking for more opportunities in the modeling/acting industry. I believe that I have an image, personality, and a look that draws a lot of attention. As I am interested in acting as well, I only have a couple months of improv acting training. I have recently auditioned and been chosen as a lead role for an Independent short film that starts filming in August 08. I have also done a couple extra parts thru Central Casting, and I look forward to more experience in the industry.
