About Me

A Lifetime of Acting

I began my career in entertainment as a teenager. At 15 I began writing and recording music, releasing mix tapes around the NW PA area. Two years later I did my first music video and made my first movie called Art Class as a high school project which I was in, directed, and edited. I continued putting out mix tapes and then in 1997 put out my first solo album followed up in 1998 with my second solo. I was featured on the CD RICO Next Up and then produced the CD Erie Area Music, followed up with the CD Youngstown Area Music and I made the music documentary Youngstown's Lost Youth. I started my first character project movie called That Which Survives but the project wasn't completed.

I started doing more acting in my early twenty's, my first big break was in the zombie movie Dead Life which was distributed internationally. From there I acted in more movies and started making my own. I was mentored in the film business by the late Conrad Brooks who is best known for his role in the science fiction classic Plan 9 From Outer Space. I was also given advice in my early years from the late Michael Sheard best known for his roles in Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Doctor Who. They were kind of my Yoda and Obi Won so to speak. 

I have also been in two movies with Conrad Brooks as a comedy duo in The Maniac and in a cameo in Super Hell 2 plus he has been in all four of my full length films. 

I had my real first 15 minutes of fame when I released the female serial killer slasher movie The Girl. I was in magazines, newspapers, and on TV. It was an interesting thing to go through at the time. 

Available for Projects / Convention Appearances

I am available for acting in film and TV projects and to appear at conventions. In movie roles I have played all types of roles and can alter my voice to fit the character which isn't something all actors can do. I have played everything from a mayor, police officer, attorney, to a punk rocker. The movie roles I'm best known for are The Girl, Midnight Massacre, and Dead Life. My IMDB link ishttps://www.imdb.com/name/nm1832399/

Current Projects

I am currently producing the movie Midnight Massacre as well as playing one of the lead characters, Julius Caesar. The movie is losely based off the William Shakespeare play Julius Caesar but set in an alternative modern day reality. The movie stars Susie Feldman who is best known for co starring with Corey Feldman and Corey Haim on the TV show The Two Coreys and she was also in the first season of The Surreal Life. The movie also marks the return of Linda Harrison, she had retired from acting in 2001 after appearing in Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes. Linda is of course best known as co starring with Charlton Heston in the science fiction classic Planet of the Apes and she was also in Ron Howard's film Cocoon. The movie also marks the final appearance of science fiction icon Don Pedro Colley who portrays the President. Don was in George Lucus's science fiction classic THX 1138 and Beneath The Planet of the Apes as well as co starring as Sheriff Little in The Dukes of Hazzard. The movie also features Byron Cherry who was the lead character Coy Duke in the 5th season of The Dukes of Hazzard. Another lead actor is Matthew T Metzler who is a co star in Maze Runner Scorch Trials, Acts of Violence with Bruce Willis, and he was a regular in the last season of Breaking Bad. We have had several distribution companies interested in the project which will wrap in the summer of 2018.
