Bio

 

Jeff trained as a theatre actor in college and conservatory programs and appeared in regional and local theatre in Southern California, Utah and Arizona before pursuing Film and Television in L.A. He has worked in several TV, Film and Commercial projects over the past 10 years. He has booked roles on 4 feature films, several shorts, a prime-time network comedy, a daytime soap, plus several commercials and documentary re-enactment shows.


He has experience in martial arts, fight choreography, light stunts, precision driving, improv, teleprompter, ear prompter, and hosting. Additionally, he is an excellent mimic of several accents and dialects and is also an outstanding singer in the styles of rock, country and Broadway with a high baritone vocal range.

 

Born and raised in San Diego, Jeff has lived all over the Southwestern U.S. and is now a resident of Los Angeles. Married for over 15 years, he  and his wife are avid supporters and advocates of pet rescue and adoption charities and are parents to three of the of the snuggliest cats you ever heard of. He's the second of three brothers and the son of a long-haul trucker and a high school teacher.  

Jeff is also a die-hard Chargers fan while his wife loves the Rams, so the battle for the remote can be intense on Sunday afternoons during football season. He still uses a 3rd generation click-wheel iPod, watches too much HGTV, is over 5 years clean from a long and embarrassing  karaoke habit, and his favorite flavor of chewing gum is spearmint.
