I am an actor, filmmaker, husband, father, UPS driver and recently a health coach from South Lake Tahoe, CA. I moved to Hollywood after high school with no plan and no clue. It didn't take me long to lose myself in all the glitz and glamour. I moved back to Tahoe and started a family.  I took a 20 year hiatus to figure out that I really did want to be an actor. Thanks to Inside Acting I found the courage to start acting again. I get to do community theater plays and work on short films and independent films here in Tahoe! //  Facebook | @tahoeactor
