I have been a model, actor, comedian, journalist, and a professional musician; I write music and am accomplished piano player. My acting experience has been on the stage, commercials, and independent film. Some of my stage work includes productions of The Ice Man Cometh by Eugene O’Neil, Oklahoma, and West Side Story. I have also been a veteran of the comedy stage, making debuts at some of the top comedy clubs in Dallas such as Hyenas and Ad Libb’s as well as the West End Comedy Theater as a standup comedian and sketch comedy. I produced, wrote for, and stared in the comedy troupe The Sideshow Freaks, a professional comedy troupe from Dallas Texas. The group is now called DCF. They have created a show called Snipers for Jesus, which I helped write and produce. The show is broadcasted on internet networks such as You Tube.
