I have been working on stage and in front of the camera acting, in print, and film for over twenty-five years. I am originally from Chicago where I grew my love for theatre (especially Shakespeare), before moving to California where I became a SAG-AFTRA actor.

Now, I'm on the other side of the camera. I love writing, producing, and directing because I love the adventure of collaboration. I love telling stories.

I love all aspects of the creative process, writing and directing energizes me. I love building relationships on sets and beyond because I love working on a team. That's why I started SonCity Media. I want to entertain, but it's my passion to move people, to touch them, and wake us up to live a meaningful life.

Life is about living a better story.

My wife, our three kids, and our dog live the crazy/good life in Northern California. Say hi to me and shoot me a message on any of your favorite social media platforms. I hang out on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter! Find my buttons on the bottom of this page.
