Innovative Artist


Innovative Artist/Actor​ March 1992 - present​
 Secured four multi-year national commercials & twenty-five regional commercials.
 Appeared at the Organic Theater in Chicago while a member of the Farrell Theatre Troupe.
 Obtained three lead independent film roles.

During a summer respite with family in Indiana, I won a role as Henry Lodge in "Move over Mrs. Markham" at The Red Barn, a local summer stock theatre. The “acting bug” was now solidified. A natural performer, I went on to join the Farrell Theatre Troupe and perform at The Organic Theater in Chicago playing W.D. in Bonnie and Clyde "WANTED". This original screenplay was first improvised and then co-written
by the theater troupe. My emotionally filled performance garnered recognition that secured me representation. This also gave way to a successful run in television commercials and continues to this day.
