Fitness became a part of my life at a young age. Being a natural-born athlete, I came to realize how important Fitness was to me. And still is. Fitness has taking me farther than I ever dreamed. From personal training, to bodybuilding. I am currently a NABBA Pro Bodybuilder. And now with my acting and modeling career taking off, my physique is creating so many more opportunities for me. Being a Pennsylvania native, I was born in Lancaster and raised in Reading. Along with my 9 siblings. 7 boys and 3 girls. There was never a dull moment. At the age of 23 I started talking Runway Modeling Classes and Acting Classes. But my passion for it didn’t start there. I then realized I’ve had this burning inside me since my early teenage years. Unlike most kids, i never pretended to be a Superhero. I wanted to be the actor that played the Superhero. I would memorize lines and correct other kids when they messed them up. Like a Director. At the age of 20, when my daughter was born, I suddenly had a new passion and focus. Being a father. From there on my life took so many different turns and directions. Acting pretty much became nonexistent. But the passion and fire continued to burn. That flame never burned out. And then almost 20 years and 4 kids later the opportunity presented itself again. And I told myself I walked away from this once, but I will NEVER do that twice in a lifetime! So I started searching for modeling and acting Agencies. I then started getting Runway Modeling Jobs in New York. While working a full-time job, I would drive 3 hours to New York for classes and shows. Shortly after that I booked an Outten Kia Car Commercial. Then I finally got my chance for film in M. Night Shyamalan’s “Glass”. Which I was barely featured. But it was everything to me. But I needed more. Now Pennsylvania and New York were great for the modeling industry, but for acting the opportunities were almost nonexistent. That’s when I decided to make the life changing decision to move to California in August of 2018. And it was one of the scariest transitions I’ve ever experienced. But in past 8 months of being here, I’ve managed to find a good Agency to start getting work with. And so far I’ve filmed on 21 different TV shows. And I am part a great Production Company doing short films that are creating life changing opportunities for us!So now when I look back on my life and remember the crazy up and down roller-coaster rides. And seeing myself at 43, I realize you are NEVER too old to pursue your dreams. Morgan Freeman got his big break in “Lean On Me”. He was in his 40’s! And look at the icon that he has become. KNOW the difference between “failures” and “losers”. Failures get back up. Losers don’t….. So my message to you is DON’T GIVE UP! Keep training. Keep striving to improve. Because as you can see, HARD WORK DOES PAY OFF!
