HOOOOORAY FOR HOLLYWOOD!!!
In the Summer of 2018, I became creatively restless and started to explore a new medium of Art – Background Acting (formerly called "Extras", now called BG). Keep in mind that this form of Art is not only acting, but a supporting component of a scene in any Film production that enhances the visual environment/emotional content of the scene. That being said, a high percentage of BG are accomplished actors of all different levels. It's a great classroom. Plus, I've been married for decades to an accomplished SAG Card Carrying actress - Clay Bravo - who is not only a major influence on my creative life, but also on my heart. https://www.claybravo.com/
I am “Designer Wallpaper”.
I earned my SAG (Screen Actors Guild) CARD early on and am now a card-carrying SAG member. This accomplishment was a milestone in my life and has catapulted me to a new level of involvement in this creative field. In this short time span since I began this work, I have been included into over 100 productions (movies, TV, Commercials) and have gotten to meet and work with some of Hollywood’s legendary actors. In 2021, I was nominated and included on the SAG Voting Committee for Movies & Film. I have been "CORE" BG (selected as a regular recurring role) on TROOPERS, UNBELIEVABLE, PERRY MASON, currently on Apple+ TV's THE MORNING SHOW and also featured in the upcoming Netflix movie "UNFROSTED" (Jerry Seinfeld's movie about Pop Tarts now in production).

Background Actors give life, realism, texture, emotion and atmosphere to a scene and are one of the most important aspects of film.

To be a swatch of color in a magnificent piece is such a prideful moment for me and to walk on all of these historical sets and studios in and around Hollywood and Los Angeles is just pure FUN!

REPORTER - FOR THE PEOPLE
I will always be star struck, since I used to look at Hollywood from afar as a child growing up in Wisconsin... to now playing and working with them here in LA LA LAND.
THE SPECIAL MOMENTS AND FRIENDS THAT I'VE MADE ALONG THIS SHORT JOURNEY ARE PRICELESS. LIFE THROWS CURVEBALLS AT YOU AND YOU JUST HAVE TO CATCH THEM INSTEAD OF DUCKING.
AND LEST WE FORGET THE WARDROBE, CRAFTY AND MAKE-UP...SO MUCH FUN!!!
