I started my amazing journey, my acting career, in Orlando, Florida. I started with only a dream and a passion and that passion led me to enroll in a local theater program where I trained for 2 years performing in local theater productions. This is where I discovered that I had a talent that needed to be explored even deeper, so from there, I decided to pack my dreams in a bag and leave the small town of Orlando Florida to embark on a journey north to the Big Apple; New York City.
I quickly fell into the theater scene of New York, and I ended up booking Off-Off Broadway work at theaters such as the famous La Mama Theater and other theaters nestled within the culturally rich Lower East Side off of Ludlow Street. I then decided to harness my talent and hone my skills even further, so I took another big step; I auditioned for, and was accepted into, the prestigious NYU Graduate Acting Program. I trained with the best of the best, worked with some of the best theater directors and grew as a performer and as a person tremendously. From there I climbed another tall step and performed in Off-Broadway shows. From there I was most fortunate to book and perform in a Broadway show opposite Nathan Lane and Jean Smart - not bad for a guy who came from a small city to the Big Apple with only raw talent and a dream only to end up on Broadway…if I say so myself.
After that, I took a huge leap of faith and moved to Los Angeles, California. I ended up booking my first speaking part on the award winning episodic "The Practice". From there, and after some auditions, I booked another part on another award winning show, "24" where it was such a thrilling experience to work opposite Keifer Sutherland. I also booked a cool film called "UMI's HEART".
In addition to performing, I am the co-founder of Ameri-Emirati Imagination Media™ [ AEIM ] . AEIM is a small media company that will focus on edutainment content that lies within the realm of animation and literature for children, young adults and families with a primary focus on the Middle East and North African market. AEIM seeks to be based within the culturally rich and beautifully diverse city of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.
From my early years in Orlando, Florida to my fearless move to New York City, to my leap of faith to Los Angeles, California and my creative aspirations with Ameri-Emirati Imagination Media™ in the United Arab Emirates, my career has been in a constant state of ascension. I look forward to continuously working with amazing people on wonderful projects; and I continue to walk the path of a phenomenal artist.
I am a constant work in progress always moving towards light.
