Bio

5 years of experiential marketing experience combined with 13 years as a professional actor renders me a unique addition to your team. I bring panache and entrepreneurial zeal to every event!

I believe that a more personal approach, however brief, is the key to delivering the client a higher quality result. I read the manuals, reviews, and comb through forums to learn what people like and don't like about a product. My experience as an entrepreneur has taught me that the only way to truly communicate excitement about a product is to learn about it inside out. Because a knowledgeable product specialist or brand ambassador can cultivate the one thing a client needs most: Trust.

When I'm not on the show floor or at an activation - I'm a Chicago actor & singer who moonlights as a lumberjack. I'm also a cyclist currently planning a cross country tour, a science buff, and budding photographer.

I believe that humor and levity are the best tools we have in our interactions with others.
