I am a professional actor working over 30 years in film, TV, and stage. In the 80's and 90's, I cut my teeth in the NYC downtown theatre scene. More recently, you can catch me on the Indie Festival circuit as well as TV shows such as BOARDWALK EMPIRE, BLUE BLOODS, JESSICA JONES, BLINDSPOT and GOTHAM.
Very happy and proud to announce that I have signed with Affinity Artists Agency based in NY and LA. I'm looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship.
SEVEN SHORT FILMS ABOUT (OUR) MARRIAGE had it's world premiere in March at the Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose, CA. The film was nominated for several awards at ReelHeART International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada, including Best Feature Film, Best Editing, Best Cinematography and Best Actor - Drez Ryan as Noah. Drez wound up winning his category and I couldn't be happier for him! Congratulations to the entire team!! Here's a link to the trailer: https://vimeo.com/385256680
THE DEVIL IN THE DOORWAY, written and directed by Hilarion Banks and starring yours truly, premiered at the Austin Film Festival in October. Here's a link to the film's website:
I shot a short film this past September written by Adam Aresty and directed by Jacqueline Dow called ART. It's basically me doing an 8 page monologue while driving a town car. NICE!!
In October I was in a film, ANNIE'S NIGHT, is being lined up by the production team for release to major festivals, which hopefully will be up and running again.
Lots of good stuff going on - check back to keep up with the break neck pace of things!
