Why did I start acting? In early 2017, the IT job I held was eliminated due to the sale of the company I was working. As a result of the sale, I received a nice redundancy payment, ( That is a severance package to the Americans in the audience) This allowed me time to explore my options as far as what comes next.
As a teen, my dream was to be a musician, hence, After high school, my first stop was Berklee College of Music to study Music Production & Engineering and the saxophone. I then moved on to more technical and IT-oriented studies. This led me to working in IT for years. I also worked in the field of photography. I’ve noticed over the decades since high school that I am happiest when doing work that involves creativity. I decided I wanted to get back to my artistic “roots.”
When a friend, who has been an actor for years, asked me to join him in taking a class, I took him up on the offer. I’ve found acting exhilarating, and as a result, I look to add it to my repertoire of artistic endeavours.
I have completed several acting training classes. Instructors and fellow students tell me that I appear natural and believable.
