LEARNING PROFESSIONAL ACTING IS LIKE BEING IN A TUNNEL THAT IS THREE YEARS LONG AND EVERYONE HAS A FLASHLIGHT EXCEPT YOU !

It has been said that it takes 20 years to be great at your work...acting is no exception! During my years in the film industry I have held the positions of actor, director, producer, writer, assistant director, videographer, video editor, assistant video editor, production assistant, grip, photo double, stand-in and background actor.
For nearly a decade, I performed as a principal cast member in Hollywood's longest running play; "WELCOME HOME SOLDIER".
For many years I trained under the direction of Jeff Goldblum, Robert Carnegie, Tony Savant and J. D. Coburn, at one of the largest, most respected and highly recommended acting schools in Los Angeles, California, "PLAYHOUSE WEST".
I have worked with noted actors James Woods, Tom Hanks, Raul Julia, Mercedes Ruehl, Andy Garcia, Billy Crystal, and Jason Alexander.
Some of the directors I worked with are Steven Spielberg, Robert Zemeckis, Oliver Stone, David Steinberg, David Mirkin, Neil Leifer, Ami Mann, Mick Jackson and Joe Adler.
I have appeared in Catch Me If You Can, Nixon, Indictment-The McMartin Trial, Contact, Coneheads, The Bachelor, General's Daughter, Next Door, For Better or Worse, Dawn of our Nation, The Witness, Case Breakers, Outlaw, Clinton & Nadine, Space Marines, Trading Hearts , Star Trek, Deep Space Nine, General Hospital, The Edge, Designing Women & Miami Vice TV series.
The film studios I worked at are MGM, 20th Century Fox, Universal, Paramount, Warner Brothers, Sony Pictures, Lime Lite Studios, Dania Films, Multi Media Productions & Newman Films.
Simply reading this or any other written material on acting will not teach you to become an actor, any more than reading a book on flying will teach you to pilot an aircraft. I know this from personal experience as I have done both, and acting is infinitely harder!
