After receiving a scholarship for theater at ULV I dropped out to pursue more dynamic performance based training at AMDA Los Angeles. I studied with Jamison Jones, Karly Rothenberg, Serena Berne, and Michael Zelniker, and Frances Callier. Upon graduating I booked my first television gig on The History Channel playing the historical character William Weatherford. Shortly after that I met my longtime coach Alex D'Lerma, formerly of UCLA, and booked the David Chase film Not Fade Away and a few commercials. I've had the privilege to work with many talented people on set, at The Cinema Gym, on the independent feature film Fear, Love, and Agoraphobia for which I won best actor, at The Second City and at the Upright Citizens Brigade

And then I fell in love with Willie...

Willie!
