the past few years you have been quite busy in film, have you not?
Yes I have been. In the the past 4-5 years, I have done nearly 60
films. Mostly independent.
Technically, you started acting in school plays?
Sort of. I did church plays. I was home schooled all of my life.
If I am correct, you got away from acting and then decided to go back
into it? Sort of a fulfillment of a dream type of thing?
Well, not really. I always wanted to be an actor. My parents and friends
told me that I would never make it. That movies never came to the New
England area. Well not a lot of them did back in the 80's and 90's. So I
decided to go for it after my wife and I decided to use my life savings
to go into this new and exciting career.
Where did you go to acting
Robert Powers in Boston.
As far as acting
schools go, do you consider these productive?
Yes and No. It helped me to get my edge in acting, and also got the
right connections as well for films.
You have played an extra in several films?
I have played several extras in several films. I have done extra work
Sandler movies, Ben
Affleck movies, Mark
Wahlberg films, and a lot of independent ones too.
Since then you have looked to branch out, especially in the Faith-based
I have branched out quite a bit. I have also contacted several people
who are in the faith based films, one of them being David A.R. White,
who is probably the largest Christian actor in the U.S. I have monthly
contact with him and his wife regarding films and such.
You have new projects you are working on now?
Yes, I have several films that I will be in this year. Two of them are
films, and two are action comedies. I am also doing a movie of my own
- which is a faith based film about a strong atheist who has his
own TV show and tries to prove to people that there is no God or
You live in Vermont. New England doesn't seem likely as a place where
films would thrive, but it seems like a lot of Independent productions
are coming out of the area?
Well I think that a lot of films are coming to N.E. area because a lot
of movies have been filmed in all the other cities already, and I think
that because of the economy being as it is too, that N.E. is cheaper
to film here than NY or LA.
Do you prefer stage of film?
Film. You can always fix your mess ups with film. Stage you have to
recover right on stage.
Do you prefer Christian films over the secular ones?
Depends on the film. I have seen some Christian films that I was
offended of and thought that this should not be a Christian film. Just
because you throw in a Bible or Christ's name does not make it a

sci-fi realms and the like or can be cross-marketed to a secular

Well if this is regarding Christian filming into horror, then you
cannot. It would be contradictory to what the Christian film stood
for. But you can put sci-fi and thriller and action into Christian
films, but not horror.
Your interests outside of film?
My family comes first outside of filming. Love going
to church and playing softball, making new friends and helping
out those that I can in what God leads me in.
Favorite mainstream actors or actresses?
Well, in secular filming, Johnny
Depp is my favorite actor and in Christian acting it's David A.
To hope fully make more faith based films in N.E area to bring Glory
to God's name. To start my own production company and to hope fully
support my family on this as well..
Anything else you would wish to add before closing?
Just that I thank God every day for the blessings that He has shown me
and my family that we do not deserve but we receive due to His unconditional
Thanks for the interview!
