I have appeared on many TV shows, commercials, feature films, documentaries and infomercials (DRTV) as a supporting actor and lead actor with speaking parts. I am a member of SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild - American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) in USA.

HOW DID I GET MY START IN ACTING? . . . I have always been told since I was a child that I should "be an actor" . . . But what motivated me to pursue this further as a career possibility? Well, I initially got inspired by watching countless episodes of a show called DAKTARI as a kid. DAKTARI is a wild animal action adventure series that was aired on CBS prime time on Channels 7, 10 & 11. Original cast & series can be viewed at ;

HOW DID I GET MY START IN MODELLING? . . . During my freshman year at the University of Pennsylvania, Shippensburg (SU) my roommates SECRETLY entered me into the university pin-up calendar competition which was being put on and managed by Alpha Sigma Tau sorority, the largest on campus. I got a call not long after informing me that I had been selected as a finalist (12 out of a student body of 13,500 undergraduate students) and that I was going to be MR. APRIL and when I was available for a photo shoot. That's how it all started really. My Mom still has the calendar. I didn't do ANY modelling after that until I moved out to the west coast to California.

Then, after I graduated, whilst skateboarding around on the Venice Beach boardwalk where I lived at an international youth hostel called "Jim's At The Beach", a woman stopped me (actually waved me over) one late afternoon. She asked me if I ever modeled and I said "no", and she said that I should and she gave me her card and told me to call her. So I did. She got me into a photo shoot, entered me into a modelling competition sponsored by GQ, Gillette and managed by FORD models. I ended up being selected as a finalist in that competition and subsequently offered a contract with FORD.

Dancing

Dancing ability

Beginner


Have busted a few moves for various music videos and on the dance floor of some night clubs and out in the desert. Also filmed dancing in the middle of the street (Park Avenue) in New York City for another artist. Never formally studied dance nor have I taken dance classes of any type. I am a very good barn and country western square dancer though because it was compulsory that we do this dance type/style for junior-senior high school where I grew up in rural North America. I did a little of it when I was back in Texas a few years back, but I'd have to fish to get video of that. Was on a ranch in the middle of nowhere near Armadillo, Texas.
