I am an actor and director from St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada and now I live in Copenhagen. I have been working in film, television, and theatre for almost 20 years (wow, time flies!)
Before falling in love with a Dane and being roped back to live in Denmark, I was steadily working in Vancouver and Toronto and other parts of Canada and the USA. I started my television career, with a goofy recurring character in the Canadian TV Hit "Republic of Doyle" playing the male-prostitute-police-informant Lance MacDonald.
Apparently that was my bag, because ever since, I have been playing sleazy drug dealers, prostitutes, and general baddies and villains in television and film back home in Canada. I have been a guest baddie in Arrow, and vigilante vampire slayer in Supernatural, a rat eating monster in Lost Girl, a deranged killer in the cult film Incredible Violence, and many more low -lifes and Ne'er-do-wells. Recently I was a series regular on CBC´s Little Dog, playing manager/trainer to the villain boxer in the underdog story as well as a regular in the new Syfy series Astrid and Lilly Save the World, playing the hippy high school art teacher. Here in Scandinavia, I’m making my European television debut as a regular character in the new Viaplay series TROM.
Concurrent to my film and television efforts, I was Artistic Director of several theatre companies and festivals over the years and created and produced many productions. I served as director on some pretty awesome shows and worked with some pretty awesome people and am very grateful for that experience. (I mean, there were some pretty awful shows in the mix too, let's be honest, we have all been there! )
My time as a director helped me inform my approach to auditioning and casting, and having been on both sides of that camera, many a time, I choose to believe I have a modest understanding of what works and what is helpful. So, if anyone needs to consult or chat, or help with an audition or a reader, I would be glad to help.
All the best to Everyone and Let's all find something incredible to work on!
hope you're all best kind,
