Until I was 45, I had never even acted in a school play. In 2002 I starred in three Off-Off-Broadway plays and ten short films in New York. In 2003 I moved to Los Angeles, where I worked in another 140 independent and student films. Forty-seven of them made it onto IMDb (IMDbPro version).

I won an award for “Best Actor in a Short Film” for the first film I ever acted in. It was at a small film festival in Denver that no longer exists, and the award doesn’t appear on IMDb. In any case, the story is quite harsh, and I would rather refer viewers to my more recent work, which can be found in some of my antiwar comedies.
