Originally from the suburbs of Chicago, I gradually migrated west until reaching the Pacific Ocean. I now reside in Los Angeles, California – home of Hollywood, freeways and year-round summer. Okay, okay, so maybe it does get a little chilly here for a few months in the winter but, let’s face it people, how cold are temperatures in the 60’s really? Having said this, I must now admit that I wear sweaters, hats, and scarves here in the winter. I’ve become such a wimp.
As you’ve probably surmised from the rest of this website, I am an actor. I first became addicted to acting in the second grade. I was assigned the role of the playful platypus in a class play about the animals in Noah’s ark. Ever since I did my four-legged strut down the classroom aisle, I haven’t been able to get enough. My family often saw signs of my future occupation even before I became a platypus. It may have been the homemade commercials my sister Robin and I made for “All” laundry detergent and “Snuggle” fabric softener. It might have been that I sang and danced on top of the coffee table to songs on our player piano. Or maybe it was my early voice-over work telling stories about my stuffed animals into a tape recorder. Whatever it was, they seem to have seen this career choice coming.
Well, my stuffed animals would certainly be proud because, a degree in Theatre Arts later, here I am in Hollywood. Since coming here I have had all sorts of acting adventures. I’ve fought a Category 5 Hurricane in front of a green screen, lit a mattress on fire in close-up, done Japanese slapstick, pretended to swim next to an imaginary otter and had many other such odd and wonderful escapades. And I look forward to many more.
Thanks for visiting my website.
