Not a lot to update, recently did a music video for a new and upcoming country artist. Can't release details just yet, but it should be out soon. Coming later this year a short film I am in called Recaptured, I play a Doctor in the film. We had originally shot this in February and March of this year, then the director was able to secure a better set location for our lab scenes and we re-shot the film.
2018 has been a very difficult year for me personally and I have had to take much of the year off from working. In February, my brother Joey was diagnosed with a Gliobastoma Multiforme Brain Tumor and my life has not been the same since. Joey was given 3-6 months to live after he had surgery to remove what they could of the tumor. He went through radiation and chemo, but the tumor kept growing. At the end of April, we decided to let him have his remaining days doing the things he wanted to do. If you watched our families reality show, then you know Joey was real outdoorsy guy-fishing, hunting, camping were just some of his favorite things to do. And he did, even on hospice care, Joey was able to go fishing, go camping, and most importantly spending a lot of time with friends. On July 27th, my brother passed away. Joey was always a great supporter of my acting career and as time passes, I certainly hope to do him proud once again.
While the year has been a rough one so far, I was able to do a couple of projects. I was part of the shoot for the music video Acappela by Morgan Myles, I am just a blip in the final cut, but it was still a fun shoot. Also, the same day we found out about my brothers tumor, I was cast in a short film called Recaptured, due out in December. We actually shot this film twice, once a more high tech set became available. The film should be out in December.
New Year, new headshots and lets hope a lot of new opportunities this year. Thanks once again to the very talented Erin Ivie for the latest headshots.
Coming in 2018 I am in a funny short film directed by award winning director Cameron McCasland. The film is titled Retrieval Service and I play the Funeral Director. It was a real scream filming in an actual funeral home.
Look for me on an episode of Murder Comes to Town, which airs on the ID Discovery Channel. I played the Lead Detective in the case. This airs in reruns, so check the listings for the next air date. The episode is called "Whose Missing Now"
Several other projects this fall have kept me busy. Did a photo shoot in Nashville for Lifeway, as the Apostle Paul. Did a piece for a very popular historic tourist destination in Nashville, playing an historical figure and I finally got to be in the STAGE production of The Rocky Horror Show, as Dr. Scott.
