What has been your favorite role?
I have been lucky to have more than one, but the one I can say that stands out the most, was stunt doubling for Adam Sandler in Happy Gilmore. It was such a fun show to work on, with some great stunts, lots of laughs, and such an amazing
cast and crew.
What do you do when you are not performing?
My wife Tracey and I have 3 wonderful children, which of course has always kept us very busy & is very rewarding 😃. We have a small ranching operation, and both of my sons like to team rope, so we spend many fun hours riding & roping in our outdoor arena at home. I love to travel, whether it be at a beach, skiing, camping,
or hanging out at the lake with friends.
What organization / activity are you involved with or passionate about that
people would find interesting?
Stunts Canada is an association of sixty plus Stunt Coordinators and Performers in Western Canada that was formed in 1970. The group was formed by Alex Green, John Scott (One of our Calgary Members) and the Wardlow brothers. I am the 34th member of the group, joining in 1990. It’s great to see how it has changed with the world of film. Stunts Canada has impacted industry growth and has helped performers and coordinators continue to advance in this
What Director would you like to work with?
Well, that would be a long list but, Robert Zemeckis, who directed Forrest Gump would be at the top of my list. I mean, how can you beat that movie from 1994? Oliver Stone & The Coen brothers would also be up there.
What is your favorite movie and/or TV show?
For movies, pretty much anything with Tom Hanks. When it comes to TV shows, you can’t beat the Fargo series – filmed right here in Calgary, Alberta.
As a Performer, what is one thing you wish you would have known sooner?
I have to say that I wouldn’t change anything. I started at a young age and luckily worked with some amazing people that gave me great wisdom and knowledge to help me make good decisions for my path as both a performer and coordinator. If I could pass on any advice, it would be what I was told: work hard, be humble, be patient & be a good person.
