2 Skills
Besides being an actor and writer, I am also a tech geek who is extremely internet savvy. I have experience in basic video editing as well and have a working knowledge of various audio and video codecs. I have excellent grammar and math skills, but am also a very artistic, creative guy. As can be seen on my resume, I also have an extremely varied work background which has taught me many skills over the years.

I'm a hard worker and a person of integrity. This quote from Martin Luther King sums up my work ethic: “If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”
