My creative life as an Independent Artist is an ever-evolving unpredictable journey of exhilarating highs & soul searching lows. However, whenever I encountered the inevitable crossroads in my life, I tap into my trusted CREATIVE INTUITION, and I am sure to be living MY PASSION & PURPOSE.
With a creative imagination, energetic spirit and two loving parents, I believed since childhood, that I had the ability to create any experience I could dream of as long as I set my mind to it. I was taught "Mindset" before it was a buzzword.
Leaving my working-class roots of Michigan to pursue my acting dreams in Chicago was a difficult life changing decision. After many failed screen tests, acting eventually took me to New York City, then onto Los Angeles including an enlightening adventure living in Hawaii.
I split my time living in Lake Tahoe & Los Angeles where I continue to act, write and produce projects, including my new series "Alive with Purpose." EVERYDAY IS A NEW CREATIVE ADVENTURE!
A Creative Leader
Being honored with the CONGRESSIONAL MEDAL OF MERIT at young age was a shocking surprise, but it certainly set the tone for my future responsibilities as leader, man of service and for my personal excellence.
As a young boy in Grand Rapids, Michigan, I grew up with a love for athletics, performing, creating and writing. Thank you mom & dad for enduring and supporting my many "plays" on stage, football fields and basketball courts. As captain of several teams, school President and camp counselor, I have always been thrust into leadership positions.
My creative passions took a back seat for a more practical career when I went to college. However, the day after I graduated from Ferris State University with a Marketing degree, I relocated to Chicago to reignite my creative passion. I jumped right in to additional learning by honing my acting skills with a variety of coaches and styles.
