Talent Work: Stunts/Acting/CommercialPrint Modeling

For over 30 years I have been:
  • a working (SAG/AFTRA) Hollywood stuntman who's gotten paid to break, burn and crash things
  • a smalltime (but reasonably acclaimed) actor
  • and in recent years, through the respectibility a bit of salt and pepper conveys, a commercial print model and spokesperson.
On this page you will find a selection of action/stunt photos from various films and projects, as well as headshot/comp shots and resume information posted as a convenience to those who might hire me. Clicking on the first two thumbnails will download a larger version of these in the form of a small pdf file; clicking on the last four will take you to larger versions of a thumbnail. And anyone requiring a headshot or resume in PDF format can also click on those links to download.

A little example of defiance of gravity and posted traffic laws in action: a commercial on which I stunt coordinated, did the majority of stunt/precision driving that you see (including the ramp jump), and was cast as talent.



Objective: push hotdog cart, wait for crash, don't get crushed. From "Black Snow". Transformed into Buster Keaton for "Lincoln-Mercury".
As both lost boy and pirate on "Hook" Doubling Ned Eisenberg, after applying a scary receding hairline haircut for "Last Man Standing"
As a terrorist in "True Lies". Bullriding. 75-foot high fall into boxes, for music video. Racing Grand Prix cars at Bondurant.
