Grew up in Toronto, Canada.  Planned to be a doctor like my dad. Problem was… I hated math and science.

Graduated.  Took a year off to figure out what I wanted to do with my life.  Parents weren’t thrilled .

Secretly dreamed of being a dancer.  On a whim, auditioned for The American Musical & Dramatic Academy.  Got in. Dad really wasn’t thrilled, but mom said go to NYC or you’ll always wonder WHAT IF…

Hit the Big Apple to pursue my dream.

Danced in commercials and music videos…Sweat-thumb

Nike-thumb…modeled for Nike…

…and was part of a short lived rap group called FLEXX.

Quickly realized dancing was not a good long term career choice.  Shifted my focus to acting and headed west to realize the Hollywood Dream.  Landed a series regular role on a FOX TV show then realized I wanted a creative outlet for my own stories.

Went back to school.  Studied filmmaking.  Now I work as a director with the occasional acting gig thrown in. And my dad became my biggest fan. 🙂

THINGS I’M MOST PROUD OF…

+ Running a marathon when 400 meters was my idea of long distance

+ Camping solo cross-country in a 1982 Cadillac Seville while doing a silent sabbatical

+ Every time I’ve walked towards the fear

Storytelling is the most important force in our world.

Storytelling is what changes us.  Storytelling is how we grow.

Storytelling is what moves people to the next level inside themselves and in the culture they live.
