Please introduce yourself. What do you do? Why? What do you want people to know about you?
I am an American stuntman/actor and I’ve been in the entertainment industry for 20 years. I grew up in Newport Beach, California and played basketball growing up which helped me with my athletic abilities as a stuntman. One thing that helps me as a stuntman is I’m not afraid of heights and I’m pretty much willing to do anything for the art of film and having the best safety and personal while working on major productions helps ease my fears a little.
What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?
The biggest thing that sets me apart is my willingness to adapt to the role. I doubled an actor at 170lbs then another actor at 230lbs on 2 different tv shows within a year shooting at opposite schedules. When I was younger I played a good looking high school student now I look like a bald bearded strongman. I have the ability and discipline to adapt to a role no matter how extreme I’m not scared of the challenge, I’m hungry for it.
Describe THAT moment when you realized you’re doing what you were born to do.
I was working on set doing double work and the director came up to me and asked me to be a character that wore a mask. I didn’t think much of it because I would have a mask on so its no big deal. Once I put on that suit and mask I realized this is what I what to do. I want to be the man behind the mask… a stuntman. Do badass things and not worry about my face being seen, just do it for the entertainment of the audience.
What’s been the biggest challenge you’ve had to go through and how did you grow through it?
Definitely injuries both overcoming them and just the everyday pain from them. Over my career for example I’ve broken my collarbone, wrists, ribs, ankle, foot, achilles tendon and the worst is my back just to name a few off the top of my head. Recovery is hard to getting back to athletic shape. I think the biggest thing is mental strength, knowing you’re capable of managing injuries and keeping the positivity going everyday.
