My wife Lisa Hall is also an actor. We have a beautiful 6 year old daughter named Maddie. I am currently working on a memoir about the harrowing, yet ultimately wonderful, story of Maddie's adoption from drug-addicted birth parents.
My brother Nick is autistic. He doesn't speak and can only communicate through assisted typing. I have experience working with others like Nick, in association with a professor at Whittier College, to help them create works of art -- poetry, short stories and even paintings.
