I was born in Tennessee and moved to Tucson, Arizona, at a young age.  During High School I fell in love with theater and that continued with me though my early 20’s as I studied acting and directing.  During that time, my dedication and persistence led to appearances on stage, in television, and motion pictures.

My passion for acting took me to California and New York where I supported myself off stage by working as bike messenger.  After 6 years away from Arizona, I discovered that I needed to bring a better balance to my life and career. In 2000 I decided to return to Arizona and start actively creating the life I wanted to live.

Acting still remains close to my heart, and I am very involved in the Phoenix theater scene, appearing regularly on stage, as well as having served on the Board of Directors of Theatre Artists Studio. My wife Heidi is an attorney by day and shares the stage with me at night; in fact the stage is how we met.  We currently reside in north central Phoenix with our dog Oscar and enjoy taking him outdoors to explore the beauty our state has to offer.

Recently, I have been experiencing more of the world through foreign travel.  Trips to Bhutan, Thailand, Kenya, Peru, Scotland, England, and Mexico have given me new perspectives on how other people live, and about how awareness of other lifestyles and cultures can be transformative.

I have a strong passion for personal development, and many of my daily activities reflect this devotion.  I make time for important practices, such as yoga, mountain biking, and traveling, which helps to keep me grounded and focus on creating a fuller and more rewarding life for myself, my family and my clients.

"Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself." - George Bernard Shaw
