I am finally able to share a short film I did a few years ago in NYC! It is a 50s-era story about a boy who comes home to find a runaway robotic man seeking refuge in his bedroom. I play the title character T.I.M. You can check it out here! Enjoy!

My indie feature film debut here in the States, the sci-fi comedy Asockalypse!, is now available on DVD. It is currently on sale through Amazon, so I know I finally made the big time, when I am on sale on there! I play an alien clone, a Blahnonian, that dies several times throughout the movie, which is lots of fun in itself, popping up onscreen again and again, just when you think I am gone! Us evil alien Blahnonians have only one goal: steal all of Earth's socks to power our ship. Check me out on Amazon here.

The short film Couch Surfer is now available online for your viewing pleasure! I play Todd, a Kiwi trying to save an innocent lass from a bunch of Aussies who have invaded her apartment. Check the film out here!

Performed in a staged reading of an adaptation of Sinclair Lewis' It Can't Happen Here, directed by Paul O'Connell for Theatre9/12. My first theatre work in Seattle! This play could not be more relevant at the moment. This was all free for the audience at the Trinity Parish Hall at 609 8th Avenue on July 29th and 30th.

The short film The Tower of Babel that I had the lead role of Felix the priest in has been released online. You can view the full short film by clicking here. I loved this shoot as it was shot chronologically and all with only three cuts. The longest section involved one continuous 15 minute take!

The episode I shot a co-star role in for the award winning comedic web series Method or Madness, playing a bad speed dater for Rare View Films, went live online. Had a lot of fun improvising the character. You can click here to view the episode.

The feature film Relativity, that was shot in Chicago, is live online! This was my third collaboration with the amazing writer/director Ryan Blewett, and his first full length feature. An amazing experience, and I have a supporting role so I pop up throughout. Here's to many more collaborations! Watch the film here!

The first short film I shot a role in here in Seattle is now online! I have a lead role in Return To Sender, playing a husband who walks in on his wife with the mailman! Check it out here.

The photo series Uniform became photographer John Keatley's first solo exhibition, when it went on display at the Treason Art Gallery in Seattle. So my face ended up on a gallery wall for the first time ever! Check out some images from the exhibition here. It also received a great review in the Seattle Times! You can view the image on my Headshots page here.

I finally added the very first film I did in the United States up on YouTube and on my Videos page. The Wall, written and directed by Tim Chung for the School of Visual Arts.

Red, my cheeky little monkey of a traveling companion, finally insisted he have his own page on my website, not to mention a little button with his face on it so you can see him on every page and access his glorious gallery of adventures from everywhere. You know you want to click on that monkey! Or simply click here to check out The Red Series.

Super happy and excited to announce that, after an awesome meeting with Erin Fetridge, I now have an agent!!! I am going to be represented for film, television and commercials in the Pacific Northwest area by The Actors Group!

My second audition in Seattle led to being short-listed down to the final two! A video submission for a fantasy series, which turned out is being produced by someone who saw me in The Tower of Babel and enjoyed my performance. They asked me to submit a video even though I was about 20 years younger than the listed age for the character, and liked my choices so much they very nearly considered changing the role to fit me!
