This past month I filmed for the lead male role in the new All That Remains music video ‘What If I Was Nothing’. We also shot additional scenes for ‘A Pebble of Love’. It was great to work with everyone again!
You can find me at the US OPEN almost every day this year. I find tennis at this level to be so beautiful. The control these players from all over the World have over their bodies is incredible. Directly after the US Open I will spend some time in Toronto, Canada for the TIFF Going into the end of the month I’m excited to announce that I will be working on a new play by Brett Epstein called ‘PreppySexyTall’.
Back to the grind with numerous auditions and several small Sketch and Webisode projects in the works. There will be a few acting classes in NYC that will have a new student in them this month as I find it important to sharpen your tools. I will also be taking a short hiatus in the middle of the month to travel and visit my family.
My brother’s band: Fort Vine has started to take off so I will be attending their shows and will be spending a lot of time in the studio with them. I find great joy in supporting their ventures.

In the commercial world I booked a hilarious intel spot for the new ultrabook convertible! It was a pleasure working with a talented group of actors and the wonderful Andrew Zuchero. Below I am seen with Jon Schoss who Co-Stars in the commercial.
So if anyone is busy this time of year they have nothing on actors. I am so blessed to have given up breathing as I run around to auditions on the daily and read hundreds of scripts! There are so many new shows and someone has to be in them so fingers crossed that I am the perfect look for one. So many actors want to make it. Fortunately for me I want it the most. Day by day baby.
In other news I just started studying improv with the amazing Ashley Ward at The Peoples Improv Theater.

Day 1 of Rectangibles
Today, January 10th, I start shooting a new film! Rectangibles. I will play Paul who is one of the two male leads. The film is about Kodachrome; a legendary film stock that was discontinued by the manufacturer in 2009. On the Christmas day of 2010, two teenagers from a trailer community unearth loads of 8mm films under a mysterious mattress. They and their neighbors try to put their limited knowledge together in order to get them developed. As they find out that the only lab that still processes this film stock will be finishing their last batch of processing on December 30th, they discover the films of kodachrome are stored in the trailers around the nation and the loss of poetry of life.
