About

This is where I SHOULD charm you with my credentials; over 3 decades of experience, trained actor, etc. etc., but the truth is you probably don’t care. What you do care about is getting the right talent, dedicated to delivering your message with the desired impact. Someone Dynamic, Impactful, Relatable, and Believable. Want Sam Elliot? Jon Hamm? Morgan Freeman? Sorry, they are all booked up. You need someone with a style that doesn’t get lost in the sea of sound-a-likes and wannabes. Maybe you’re just looking for the cheapest offering. If your project, goal, service, vision means so little you’ll farm it out to the cheapest bidder, you’ll get what you paid for and not the results you wanted. If you’ve read this far and I’ve got you miffed, you have passion, let’s work together. This is where you hit the invite or hire button and reach out to me. Otherwise remember, the lowest bidder built the Titanic. Cheers.
