I was born October 8, 1974, in Clarksburg, WV, USA and am a graduate of Fairmont State University and Columbus University and am an accomplished author, musician, and entrepreneur.


I consider myself somewhat a "Renaissance Man" whose purpose is to open your mind so that you may allow yourself to be emerged in the artsy world of Indie entertainment that you will experience in my universe!



I have a deep love for the arts and the Indie literature, film, and music scene. In 2009, I founded Burning Bulb Publishing to help promote up-and-coming authors and find new avenues for existing authors to re-engage their audiences through new releases and adapatations of their existing works.


In 2010, my horror novel DARKENED HILLS was selected as 2010 Book of the Year WINNER by Foreword Reviews Magazine also became the pilot novel for DARKENED - THE WEST VIRGINIA VAMPIRE SERIES.  More information on this can be found at www.DarkenedHills.com.


In 2014, I launched Burning Bulb Comics with the release of my bizarro-western comic book titled THE TAILSMAN and in 2016 collaborated on my second comic book titled DEMONEYE.


I have appeared in stage plays and musical performances throughout my life but started acting in film at the age of 41.


In 2015, I landed my first acting role in the 2015 Bobby Easley feature film BELLY TIMBER  in the role of George Pogue and moved to supporting lead in the John Russo and Robert Lucas feature film MY UNCLE JOHN IS A ZOMBIE! in the role of Oscar, Uncle John's dim-witted nephew and bodyguard.  From there, I have starred in over twenty films and three television series.


I authored the horror screenplay IMPOUND.  I co-authored the comedy screenplay A HARD DAY IN THE LIFE OF VIRGIL BOHNER with Solon Tsangaras and Stephanie Hamm.

As a musician, I started into vocal music early in life through choral programs at both church and school. While in high school, I was honored as an "All-State" bass vocalist. I began playing the guitar and writing songs at age 13, attained BMI accreditation at age 14, and had my first Billboard Music Review at 23.


I have released three commercial albums: 1oo Percent, Passion, Pleasure, and Pain, and Somewhere Down the Road.


In 2005, I won Song of the Year for best Christian song 'Where Would I Be' in the VH1's Song of the Year competition, a program that supports the VH1 Save The Music charity. Said song appears on my Somewhere Down The Road release.


In addition to music and literature, my hobbies include exotic travel, hiking, and photography.
