Acerbic Film & Entertainment Group.

I was born in Manhattan, New York, to a young Chinese American couple. At two months of age I was adopted by an Italian American family in East New York where I resided through my second year of grade school before moving to Port Jefferson, New York (Long Island). In 1996 I moved back to downtown New York City where I enjoyed success as a real estate broker for the fashion industry.

It was through the encouragement of clients and contacts within the business which would inspire me to pursue a career as an actor. I had a head-shot made and sent it out sans agent. I answered an ad in 'Backstage' newspaper and landed a principle role in THE CUT RUNS DEEP (1998) which also marked the feature debut for director John H. Lee. In addition to my acting stint, I also served as a location scout on the production; even leasing my loft in Tribeca for interior shots. I also made appearances on the popular television sitcom "SPIN CITY" as well as national commercials while playing bits in features such as the direct-to-video release ROW YOUR BOAT (1998) starring musician/rock star turned actor Jon Bon Jovi. Upon obtaining the services of Jadin Wong, New York City's top talent agent for Asian performers, I soon found myself reading for some very good film roles and was on second call for ANNA AND THE KING (1999) and THE CORRUPTOR (1999). When I qualified for my Screen Actors Guild card my agent as well as some casting directors suggested I attend Bill Esper Studios in Manhattan to further hone my skills.

In 2000 I had resigned from acting. Still wishing to entertain, I embarked on a new career path as a DJ and was soon to become one of downtown Manhattan's top VIP nightclub DJ personalities making appearances from the Hamptons to South Beach.

Then in 2000, I relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada where utilizing my already vast knowledge and experience I founded Interstate Records; a music and entertainment company which combined retail, production and DJ schools all-in-one.

Due to certain circumstances I found myself forced to take an almost 10 year hiatus from the music and nightlife industry.

During my "situation" I had focused solely on studying film direction, production, and developed several stories as screenplays. I worked diligently in these areas. I read Daily Variety Magazine every day so that I might get a detailed understanding of the dynamics of the industry. I am preparing a film company launch some time next year. I am currently in production on a short film that I am currently shooting.
