About Me

Most BIOs are written in the 3rd person. But, since I’m writing it myself it seemed weird to write it in the 3rd person.

My first performance was when I played Jacob Marley in a Junior High School production of A Christmas Carol.  I have been bitten by the acting bug since.

I got involved in the school choir, band, and drama. I performed in such musicals as Annie Get Your Gun, Oklahoma, Dracula, and Fiddler on the Roof.  But, the most interesting thing was when I was an extra in a General Motors commercial while in High School.

Once out of high school, I tried to make my dream of being an actor become a reality.  While I was in the military, I learned the art of projecting my voice by marching 200 airmen from one location to another in squadron formation. I also briefed senior staff members as part of my daily duties and that has helped me become a learned speaker. I think that was part of the reason I landed a stand-up part in an Guard and Reserve commercial.

Over the past few years, I have gotten back into acting by working with local theatre groups.  I enjoy being on stage and being “someone that I’m not”.  You can be a cop, a criminal, a basket-case, a zombie, a tin-man or anything.  Acting is not about fame and fortune–it’s about playing and having fun.  Of course, getting paid is a bonus!
