I was born in the wonderful midwest, Kansas to be specific, Wichita to be ever more precise. Raised by a musically talented mother and a salesman for a father, I had a great time experiencing all the joys of living in such a flat place. In fact my life wasn’t flat at all.
I began acting at a very early age and worked in an amatuer production of The Nativity Story for my local church when I was 6 or 7. From there I graduated to the Wichita Boys Choir and finally walked onstage during my junior year of high school and did my first play, Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians and I haven’t looked back since.
I then matriculated to an undergraduate theatre program at Wichita State University, where he performed in such plays as The Music Man, The Apple Tree, Godspell, Rain, The Three Sisters, Othello and numerous others. After graduation with a BA in Theatre, I began a life- long journey to becoming a professional actor. I also worked in great regional theatre companies in the midwest like Music Theatre of Wichita and Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma.
Along the way I earned an MA in Theatre from the University of Denver and acted in local productions like Cloud 9, Glengarry Glen Ross, Death of a Salesman, Quartermaines Terms, Company Sister Mary Ignatius Explains it All. I also worked on my first film Elves, with Dan Haggerty. Little did I know that it would become a cult classic. Who knew? With a brief stopover in Seattle and a great time becoming more of me. In January of 1998, I loaded all of my stuff in a Ryder truck and drove straight to LA to begin the pursuit of my dreams.
During the 20 plus years I have been here in LA, I have had the wonderful opportunity to perform in such regional theatre premiers as Parade, The Light in the Piazza and Our Leading Lady. Also having worked on such TV shows like Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom, with Jeff Daniels, The Blue Streak with Martin Lawrence. I have guest starred on such wonderful shows as Old Dogs New Tricks, Inbetween, Port Charles. Also I have worked on independent films as Exonerated, Authentic Self and One Door Down. Great times and looking forward to more great times.
Currently residing in Southern CA, I am happily married to the love of my life, Tim and also enjoy our little furry family addition, Winston. I love to travel and working on our home and exercising and hanging out with my friends all over the nation.
