Had the amazing pleasure of voicing the role of Taylor for the upcoming animated film "The Likes & Dislikes of Marj Bagley." Never have I worked on such a beautifully animated piece of work, and am so thankful to have been a part of it. The Likes & Dislikes of Marj Bagley is on its way to festivals, and will have more updates and info hopefully in the coming months. Much love to creator and director Taylor Stanton for being one of the most brilliant and kind creators I have ever worked with.
Jessica Jones Season 2 is coming March 8th, and I will be briefly appearing in Episode 4. Excited for its release, and thankful to everyone on the production team for being so hands on and EXTREMELY good at their jobs.
Much Love, and see you on your TV and/or computer again soon!
Had the remarkable pleasure of working on TURN (AMC) , Blue Bloods (CBS), and a Netflix Original Series, all back to back of each other. Never have I worked with such incredible productions and creative teams such as these in my entire career.
Keep on the look out, cause they're far more stories that need to be told!
Excited to announce that we have finished principal photography for an incredibly hilarious, off-beat, webseries called Father & Son, where yes...I play the son. (fist bump) Production was an absolute joy, and the team consisted of incredible and dedicated story tellers. Definitely STOKED for its release, which will hopefully be in the next few months. The show will be pitched for various distributors, and we hope to have the show released on much larger platforms, and that everyone can enjoy Father & Son at it's utmost potential in regards to outreach and budget quality (which I feel it already has, but hey, need money to make more episodes for ya!) Much love, and will keep ya'll updated on the funness breh!
Just wrapped on a two day shoot for Season 2, Episode 2 of SHADOW OF DOUBT, and a catalogue spot for LEXUS GLOBAL. Stay tuned for info, and looking forward to the next one! =]
