I have professionally for over 15 years, in film, television, and theater.
My breakout role as Charles in the 2011 blockbuster film "Super 8" earned me a nomination at the Teen Choice Awards as "Male Scene Stealer". I've had the ability to be mentored by the great Steven Spielberg as well as JJ Abrams and get to understand what film executives are looking for in an actor, and in their performances.
I enjoy meeting new people and being able to pass along the information that I have gathered over the past 15 years. I love to work with passionate, hardworking individuals who are aiming to be great.
