New York, New Jersey
I was always intrigued by creativity. As a child I created with clay from elementary school too high school and learned how to cast and weld metal at Ramapo College NJ. I have since then received three scholarships for individual classes from art show awards. I've been noted by many to be a talented artist with my own point of view. That is why I was tagged with the nick name Point Man and In 2007 and I Created “Point Man's, View Point Productions.” with my series “Nature and Litter Showing Face,” has received rave reviews in the Metro New York/New Jersey Art Community. I take pieces of nature and litter, then transform the media into faces and figures, each with its own personality. I have displayed at local NJ galleries, alumni shows, and libraries. The summer of 2013 I displayed at “The Townhouse,” in Brooklyn N.Y., had a three month display (June-Aug) at “Heavens Antiques and Art gallery,” in Asbury Park N.J. Then the “RAW Artists Event,” In NYC, followed by the Empire Hotel rooftop art reception. My passion continues to grow, and drives my desire to push my creativity further. I am now studying photoshop and computer animation. I believe this line of study can bring life to my art.
I am also an actor and model. I have gone from general back ground up the chain to principle in TV/film. I have been in off Broadway plays with the roles of husband in active addiction/recovery, and a disgusting criminal who gets straightened out, in another.
I became SAG eligible three months into taking back ground work, and I'm in no rush to join the union. The experience and practice before moving forward are of too much value. I maintain hope that with my character and look I will make it in this universal industry.
Other parts in my life have been four years at The Bergen County animal shelter, Habitat for Humanity, childcare, Adobe After Effects & photoshop, event photography, and carpentry.
I am in pursuit to rise to the top as an actor and be able to have opportunities to show children they can create with what they find, weather they can or cannot afford supplies from an art store.
