Born and raised in Los Angeles, his inner voice spoke 'acting' at the age of 7.  He soon after decided that he would become a physician. He pursued that goal for 15 years. During his undergraduate studies (a pre-med/liberal arts curriculum, with a minor in Philosophy and Religion) his elective course work was acting, directing, and film.

After obtaining his Bachelor of Science degree, and not getting accepted into medical school, he excelled in a variety of career positions including teacher, health food store manager, chauffeur, firefighter, financial services manager, advertising executive, transportation manager, soapmaker, ranch manager, and he is also a Certified Hotel Administrator.

However, through it all he had to continue to act. He was a member of the Watts Repertory Company for several years, but found that his love for filmmaking and acting in films trumped other aspects of his acting endeavors. About five years ago, he got his "wake-up call," and is now a full time working actor.

Totally committed to his craft, he is known for doing whatever it takes to contribute optimally toward the success of all projects that he is involved with.

He loves all things living: people first, then animals, and plants. His pastimes include listening to music, reading, and spending time with friends.
