I caught the acting bug at the age of four. My older sister and cousin were taking dance class at the time and they put on talent shows for friends in the neighborhood. My role was comic entertainment. At four, you’re pretty limited to slapstick and prat falls, but it was my introduction to acting and I have been doing it ever since. I’ve been acting professionally for over 25 years, from theater to print, commercial work to film and television. During that time I have been awarded Best Local Actor (2016 and 2017) in Style Weekly, received a Tabby Award for Best Actor for Unexpected Tenderness (2016), and was chosen Best Actor at the VCU Arts Short Film Fest 2015.

My hope is to be acting professionally for at least another 25 years with the same passion and devotion I have right now.
