I was born in San Jose, California in the town of Santa Clara, but grew up in Queens, New York.
The question isn’t: "When did you realize you wanted to be an Actor?" But, “Why do you Act?“
I get to see how I can challenge myself physically and emotionally. Acting gives me an opportunity to make another person take their mind off their problems while they watch me perform. It's in those moments that I feel free. That's why I act.
I enrolled in an Acting program while I attended college. While in college I also trained with some acting coaches in NYC, and attended various acting and casting workshops.
In 2013, I was awarded “Best Action Actor” at the Urban Action Showcase held at HBO headquarters in NYC. I was commended for my performance by Michael Jai White and Kelly Hu... along with a panel of other celebrity judges, martial artists and known talent.
In late winter of 2016, I landed the role of Strike Force Lieutenant on the hit TV series “Gotham." Shortly following Gotham, I landed a role on "Luke Cage". I'm attached to multiple projects in pre-production and development, ranging from TV Series Pilots with named talent attached such as Ice T, Mike Epps and Method Man, to feature films with actors Danny Trejo, Martin Kove, Eric Roberts and Michael Madsen. From the start of my acting career till the present, I've been blessed to work alongside very talented and well known actors.
Whenever I'm not acting, I like to spend my free time with my family and friends. I keep an active life style dividing my time between weight training, studying martial arts, playing sports and spending one on one time with my little man Niko (my Yorkie-Poo!).
