Born in Los Angeles, but raised in East Tennessee, I am proof you can take the boy out of California but can’t take California out of the boy. I have loved moviemaking and acting since I was a kid, and I still believe in the magic of Hollywood film production. My goal is to attend the Academy Awards by 2029. I’ve been practicing my acceptance speech for years!
In addition to being an actor and CEO of a production company, I am fortunate to be a sought-after speaker on the topics of marketing, social media, video, and motivational leadership. I love what I do and I believe it’s important to share my skills with others.
Somehow I convinced a beautiful young girl named Anna to marry me in 2005, and since then we have been blessed with three beautiful daughters and one lazy cat. I am fueled by my faith in God and my love for my family. I enjoy grilling out, drinking craft beer, and watching University of Tennessee athletics. Go Vols!

Once again drove up to a gas pump that said “temporarily out of order.” Why is my life so hard?
