People always ask me if my name is real and it most certainly is.
I’m a California native, born in Huntington Beach. I grew up in San Diego then lived in San Francisco while attending the American Conservatory Theater MFA program (Class of 2002). L.A. is home for now.
LATEST: Set for release in 2015, I will be in the highly anticipated NWA biopic STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, The Italian Job) with Ice Cube and Dr. Dre producing. You can also catch me in BEYOND THE LIGHTS directed by Gina Prince Bythewood (Love & Basketball, The Secret Life of Bees) in theaters now.
As well as acting, I write and direct my own projects. Two shorts I’m extremely proud of HOMELESS MAN UNDER PRESSURE which received some viral fanfare online and the award winning HOW MY DAD KILLED DRACULA a fun, Halloween themed family film.
I’m currently developing my first feature film, a project very important to me called THE ELEVATOR.
