I am an American actor, known for my work in film, television and theatre. I can be seen in the Feature Film “Finn and Marco” (2018), as well as the Feature Film “Before the Dark” (2017), and Discovery Channel VR 360º film “Jailbreak” (2016) and TV show “I (Almost) Got Away with It”. I started acting in the late 1970s in stage theatre and independent films, but credits a small role in the film “Soul Man” (1986), with actors C. Thomas Howell, James Earl Jones, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, as my first real “Hollywood” level experience.
I attained Bachelor and Masters degrees in Theatre Arts and continued to act during college. Upon completion of my Masters degree I transitioned to the production side of film, television, and theatre. I worked as a union (I.A.T.S.E.) gaffer for the Walt Disney Company, worked various art department positions on film and television, and crewed hundreds of theatre productions. I am an award winning scenic and lighting designer and also received award nominations for my directing and acting.
I am married to my wonderful wife, the Honorable Bonnie Gore, an elected official in California. I come from a long family line of military service and I myself am an Army veteran. I have an amusing habit of only wearing red socks. “Because they are electric,” But I will wear any color socks needed for an acting role.
