The Actor


Acting is a passion of mine. Mostly I do it for fun--to get out of the house and to be around other creative people.

Here are some blog entries about the fun of being an actor.

This is for a movie called Higher Mission. It filmed in the winter of 2013.

To the Wonder


Cowgirls 'n Angels



It's a blast!

The Filmmaker


Producer, director, screenwriter,


My close friend and I make movies. I find that the behind the camera stuff is the most interesting--writing and directing and production.


We "wear all the hats" on video projects. We write, produce, direct, edit, and sometimes act.

Filmmaking is a passion.
