I'm an actor and social activist who's been involved in social advocacy for a long time. I founded the Los Angeles Homeless Coalition, offering shelter, relief and skills training to the homeless population throughout the city.
In the winter of 2013, I'll be producing Earth Echoes, a theatrical production that will run in Los Angeles as a benefit for several nonprofit groups.
I studied Acting at the American Conservatory Theatre and served on the Board of Directors of the Alliance Repertory Company and Theatre East. I volunteer teaching Drama and Voice & Movement at the Academy of Music for the Blind, where I also serve on the Advisory Board.
Other Advisory Boards: ElephantVoices, DreamCatcher Wild Horse & Burro Sanctuary, Born Free USA and the National Equine Resource Network and with Dr. Jane Goodall on the Advisory Council for Save the Chimps, the world's largest chimpanzee refuge, which is a permanent retirement sanctuary for over 300 chimpanzees released from the NASA space research program, biomedical laboratories and the entertainment & pet trades.
Board: TheTenDollarClub.org, a nonprofit that funds poverty alleviation projects around the world. To date, we have undertaken 80 projects in 62 countries, providing life changing services for thousands of people in underdeveloped countries.
