Acting is no exception to the disciplines I’ve taught myself. It’s an intuitive art amid all the technique. If you’d like to acquaint yourself with the product of my technical method, I challenge you to peruse my other work as well, but I wouldn’t be too preoccupied with training as you view my performances. Acting is connecting with an audience, after all, and people like Jennifer Lawrence are largely self-taught, too. I hope to connect with you. My end-goal, however, is to apply my energy and passion to a challenging and stimulating environment and learn under and work with prolific creatives, as well as to challenge the industry itself with my own journey and role as an exception to the rule in many more ways than one.
Short film “The Last House I Ever Robbed”, where I play as “Ryan”. Directed by Shutong Fan and Will Tao.
Playing as “Tom”, a veteran recounting some of his experiences from having served in Iraq, in the monologue, “Fighting In Iraq”, written by Joseph Arnone. In the author’s words:
“In this monologue, Tom talks to a few friends at a bar about his experiences fighting in Iraq.”
Tom is a seasoned combatant and comes across as someone who is emotionally able to tell the tale rather than someone who, for example, actively suffers from the symptoms of PTSD. So, I portrayed him as someone who is able to deal with the memory of his experience as he relives it for a moment for his friends.
