The rest of the story

I grew up as a mixed race brown kid, adopted by awesome parents in Northeast Ohio with dreams of being in scifi and fantasy movies. In 2019 I married my best friend, Jeff, and now we have a puppy named Skye! We'll be moving back to Los Angeles in 2025 where Adam is planning multiple theatre projects to get his name back out there! More to follow!
