Originally from Houston, Texas, I moved to New York City at a young age to pursue an acting career. The city was a great adventure and opened my eyes to the many cultures, lifestyles & vices available to an individual. At first I worked as a Ford Model and soon found myself in the exciting world of acting, landing several lead roles in both television and movies. When I was not working I spent much of my time traveling. I lived in Seville, Spain for six months and traveled throughout Europe and into Africa on numerous trips. I also enjoyed a six month adventure driving and camping throughout America where I discovered the shocking beauty of Americas West Coast. I settled in California, where I picked up surfing and started to experiment with paint. After two years in Los Angeles, unable to find consistent work as an actor, I decided it was time for a change.
