Two weeks into this adventure, he managed to sign commercially with the a prestigious Talent Agency, with whom booked in two weeks 2 National Commercials, Circuit City and Jeep, and landed two supporting roles in independent movies.

The motto he goes by describes why he has become successful in a very competitive business in such a short period of time: It is not what you do, but actually it is HOW you do what you do that makes a difference… You can count on him giving everything he is and has for his craft.
