Cold script reading and analysis is a passion of mine. I love it and have trained for the last 4 years with Anthony Meindl Actor Workshop to hone the skill.
I’m patient, giving, and truthful in my reading. I’m open to discussion and analysis or just keeping my mouth shut and reading the text. I could talk about it all day!
I’m well-read in screenplays and plays.
Ha ha ha.
Hey! Isn't the life of a creative awesome?!
The boring stuff...about me....
I’m an award winning writer and Producer and while those are cool things, acting is my jam! I’ve been a film actor on the full-time serious front for a decade. Dabbled before that. I’ve acted in 30-35 independent projects over the last 10 years or so…have written and produced a few projects, have ideas in development and working some theater right now.
Studies? Yeah. Chubbuck. Meisner. Adler. Stanislavsky. AMAW (Cold Script Analysis and Reading). Improv. No matter the method or non-method the goal is authentic connection to your partner, the circumstances, and the story. So, whether we REPEAT, trigger, listen, Pinch Ouch, I’m ready to roll…lets do some active listening! Everything comes from that place.
I am eligible for SAG but live in Georgia which is a “Right to work State” and have not chosen to join as of yet. I believe in the unions and love them.
I am a father of two, a husband of one, and a lifelong lover of the arts. My mother was a singer her whole life, acted in plays, and a painter. I have always been around it but for many years didn't honor the creativity in me. I thought I was more like my dad, the consummate business "guy". Not the business of art, either! He was "old school and didn't put much value in the arts..."he didn't have time...he was always chasing the bills".
The last conversation I had with my mother was "what happened to acting you should do it because I have never seen you more alive". This was the last thing she said to me. Three days later she died of natural causes in the middle of the night. Not expected! I walked into acting classes and onto a set and haven't left since then. She was right. I am at "home" in the arts.
I became my father's primary caregiver for 5 years. Over this time he grew to understand the arts and its importance and the joy it can bring. We are healed in art as we search for the meaning of life, the human condition, and its refection on life. They are symbiotic, art and life. My father became proud of me being an actor and having produced. This was healing to he AND I as we bonded through the work.
I look forward to connecting with you as we both search for the meaning of life on these pages. Our art can heal others and heal ourselves. I believe it is why we exist. The "Great Creator" (God, god, energy, source, universe, nature or anything you call it?) flows through us all and revels in our creativity.
Be well. Be brave. Your calling to the arts is divine. My goal is to help anyone I can on their journey and thus help myself grow deeper in the work.
