And after August 1 make a pledge to insure that the book gets published, otherwise Andy may have to stay anxious forever.
I first stepped onto a stage as a 7 year old in the role of a Munchkin in The Wizard of Oz. That was the day I knew I wanted to be an entertainer. Since then I have performed on stages throughout Chicago, Milwaukee, Los Angeles, Orange County, and Dubai including Improv Olympic, Second City, ComedySportz, IO West, Edgemar Center for the Arts, Second City Hollywood, and iO West.
I have been fortunate enough to get to write, produce and act in films. I have acted alongside the living legend Ed Asner, Keith David, Zoë Bell, and Joe Lando. I co-wrote and award winning short film, The Touch, starring Olivia Munn and have produced a horror movie, Freshwater, a horror short that is in post-production Orchestra, and have three projects in pre-production Happy on the Outside, The Panic, and Devil's Shadow.
My television career began at Marquette where I hosted two television shows. I have since produced a reality TV pilot, acted in three television pilots, and appeared on a TruTv show. The last year has been truly amazing, as I had one of my dreams come true as I starred in Vendors, a TV show I created and Joel Murray directed. I also was honored to direct the TV pilot, Memphis Fire starring David Arquette. Look for more info on both of these projects in 2019.
