Current Project: Crossroads and also producing and directing a feature film, Checkmate
Where you were born/where you were raised:
Born and raised in Flagstaff, Ariz.
Zodiac Sign: Cancer, July 10
Why did you take this role?
I liked the script, and wanted to be apart of the 11Eleven11 Films. I like what is being done to enhance the film industry. Living in L.A., you don’t really see people helping each other without them wanting something in return. It was a nice change of pace.
Did you have any particular mentors or inspirations as a young actor?
My mentors are Terry Crews and Giovanni Ribisi who always give me great advice.

Worst flubbed line/missed cue/onstage mishap:
It was during the Crossroads filming. I was getting shot as I ran; so as I was falling face first on the ground I passed gas really loud during complete silence.
Most challenging role you have played:
Playing C.J. Memphis in the stage production of “A Soldier Story,” I had to do a Mississippi country boy southern drawl and play naive. Coming from the west, and [being] college educated, that was rough.

I had the worse time while filming Our Family Wedding. It reached a point where I had to call the union in.
