     Sleep is a luxury I can't afford these days; ironically however, I can be seen playing the husband of a lovely young lady on a couple of Mattress Warehouse℠ commercials. My life is pretty exciting and I work hard to carry that excitement into a successful acting career! I was born near the Southeast coast of the Sunshine State! My mother is of Cuban parentage and my father is Puerto Rican. My acting career commenced in the Washington metropolitan area where I've lived the better part of my life. I'm a proud alumnus of the National Conservatory of Dramatic Arts, where I completed a 3rd year advanced acting program! Following my graduation, I appeared on Investigation Discovery's, I Was Murdered as Johnny DeSouza in "Final Delivery", and on A&E's Panic 9-1-1 as Isaiah Taylor in "He's Right There". I've managed to take off some of the edge by performing locally in a couple of children's shows with NextStop Theatre Company as MC Dog in P.D. Eastman's Go, Dog. Go!, and as Idol in Good Good Trouble on Bad Bad Island! I love kids; I am the proud father of two handsome boys and an uncle to beautiful young nieces! Testing the waters, I went on to appear in the critically acclaimed Take Me Out as Rodriguez with 1st Stage in Tysons! I've also worked on the sets of HBO's VeepHouse of Cards on Netflix and the feature film Creed. Along with acting, I enjoy singing, writing and drawing. Outside of acting, I'm a scientist, history buff and an avid toy and comicbook collector!
