The cultural icon Eric Lasalle once told me that “Acting is having a private moment in public”. An emotional and empathetic expression under the lights, I embrace and revel in the opportunity to be vulnerable, primal, and free. Under the tutelage of the great Ivana Chubbuck, I have learned to embrace my characters. Driving the scene, focusing more on winning the objectives and overcoming obstacles. I also employ substitutions, inner monologues, and high stakes activities.
I have recently honed and developed my craft as a Director. In just this past month, I have directed my first short film and music video. I use the honest expression that I have polished through acting work to bring very real and raw images to the screen. In a time of uncertainty of work for talented actors I embrace the words of the great Ava Duverny, "Don't wait for someone else's permission to do something creative."
It's true what they say, writers write. This year alone, I have written two treatments, a pilot episode and a 10 episode bible and pitch deck, 2 short films, a children's book and the lyrics for a few songs (one to be distributed by SONY ORCHID MUSIC GROUP). I am also currently working on publishing two books and a work book to help people dealing with mental illnesses through the medium of Martial Arts. I hope I can interest you into reading some of my work.
I am by rank a Sibok Professor 6th Degree Black Belt of SWAM and a Disciple of the legendary Shaolin Temple. I actively participate in combat and stunt classes so that I stay in shape, master my timing and endurance. With that said I am even more passionate about the healing arts of Yoga, Qi Gong, and Tai Chi. I am very happy to share my craft with you and your friends if you like. As the legendary Master Moses Powell would say, "Each one teach one, each one reach one". OUS!
My truest desire in life is to leave this Earth better than I found it. I yearn leave a legacy for young men and women to be excited and encouraged to ALIGN. I believe we are defined by our actions, and for me unselfish activism- actively supporting those in need- is one of the purest actions a man can make. I'm hoping that in reading this I have inspired you to make an active effort to support those in need.
As the yin embraces the yang I embrace the left and right brain. Aside from just being a busy creative, I am a very organized and determined entrepreneur. I own two successful businesses in Property Management and Freight Forwarding. Check out my latest venture in e-learning below.
