Originally, from Sterling Heights, MI, I'm the son of two Midwesterners, and definitely call Michigan my home. Growing up in southeast Michigan, my first role was that of the ringleader in my kindergarten circus production.
In 2007, I followed my dream to be an actor by attending Western Michigan University. During my time there, I performed in Seven Passages, a locally produced play based on the stories of West Michigan gays. In 2008, the production toured to Canturbury, England where we performed for many of the 650 bishops attending the once-a-decade Lambeth Conference. Other notable roles at WMU include Orpheus in Eurydice, Howard in Moon Over Buffalo, and Takeshi Kawabata in Take Me Out.
After graduating from WMU, I moved to Detroit, and have been working in theatre, film, and commercials around the state. I've been fortunate enough to play great roles, workshop new plays, and just have a good time at theaters like Purple Rose Theatre, Williamston Theatre, JET, and Detroit Repertory Theatre. I was nominated for a Wilde Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Play for my role in The Electric Baby (Kickshaw Theatre). In 2017, I was nominated again for Best Lead Actor in a Play for my performance in Really, Really (Planet Ant Theatre).
You may have seen me in a commercial or two like for Michigan Lottery or Biggby Coffee. In 2017, I had the opportunity to shoot a commercial for Choice One Bank directed by Jeff Daniels.
My interests in the entertainment field extend beyond acting as well. I've been a producer on multiple projects in Detroit including helping produce Shakespeare in Detroit's inaugural production Othello . In 2015, a group of friends and I got together to produce Thick Air, an award-winning, improv-based short film shot in Detroit. Currently, I'm co-producing another short entitled Famous In Michigan about an aging artist in the city.
Outside of entertainment, I'm a huge lover of technology. As a computer geek, I taught myself how to code, and am always looking at new advertising technologies. This led me to start my own digital marketing and web design company, Milo Media.
