Any special training?
I never got a degree in performance, but I’ve taken classes in acting, directing, auditioning, vocal music, dance, stage craft, rigging, and temporary structures. I’ve also spent many years on and off stage in schools, churches, big theaters, little theaters, traveling shows, convention centers, TV, and film.
Got a good theater story?
I once had an audition for Days of our Lives, and found myself 384th in a line of 500 guys that all looked like me.
Where are you from?
I was born in Kingeville TX, home of largest cattle ranch on earth. I used to think of myself as a bit of a cowboy until I realized that I’m very allergic to horses. Unfortunately I did not realize this until I was on a horse in a comercial for a bank in N Carolina. After a lunch break and a bunch of Benadryl I finished the shoot on a bicycle.
