Peace & Love!

     Thanks for stopping by and welcome to my official website! Inside contains a list of the projects I've been involved in, some photos and head shots as well as some footage (more will be coming soon!). So feel free to browse and view all contents.

     Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I have enjoyed every moment of this journey as an actor. It's something that I've enjoyed for quite a while now. I have been blessed to work with industry professionals such as Roslyn Ruff & Broadway legend Ben Vereen. One piece of advice that I carry with me along this journey that I have received from both of them is to be persistent. To never be deterred from your goal and to keep a steady hunger. This advice has helped me navigate this industry. I have always loved movies. Actors in the likes of Idris Elba, Denzel Washington, Will Smith, Marlon Brando & Leonardo DiCaprio have been huge inspirations to me. But the film that first made me want to be an actor? --- PULP FICTION. After I watched the way Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta worked their first scene together, I was hooked.  (Watch the “Big Kahuna Burger” scene, such a great Scene!)  

     Aside from acting and writing I enjoy cooking and playing basketball & volleyball. I am a huge New York sports fan, but will always bleed blue, white and orange for The Knicks! Pursing acting full-time and one day will be on television sets regularly as well as working with the great talents on Broadway! 

 

Yours Truly,

Duke
