Actor Stunt Performer
"He does stunts on skateboards, motorcycles, and pretty much anything else that comes with wheels." - Buzzfeed
JD is a Stunt Performer, Producer and Actor located in Toronto Canada.
Born in raised in South West Ontario, JD was a professional athlete at a young age in Freestyle Mountain Biking Events across North America.
After graduating from St.Clair College for Woodworking, JD started to handcraft his own skateboards.
This led to his first appearance on CBC National news for a Skateboard Stunt.
He relocated himself in Saskatchewan which gave him the freedom and opportunity to create without boundaries.
“Create Your Own Path,” JD’s self produced short film is about overcoming obstacles and following through with ones vision.
Did I mention he rides a motorcycle through a wall of fire?
The following year, JD took his unicycle across the top of a 60 meter tall, meter wide butte in the Bad Lands of SK.
This made the front page of Buzzdfeed and again, had the interests of CBC Saskatchewan.
In 2017, JD produced, co-ordinated and performed the jaw dropping photo of him riding a Harley Davidson under a moving High Clearance Sprayer (Basically a monster tractor.) This photo was shared around world and landed the cover of Fast Times Magazine.
The next year, Jonny Harris from CBC’s “Still Standing” came to rural Saskatchewan to interview JD about his Stunt Portfolio and his aspirations of working in the film industry.
With a colourful portfolio in hand, JD hit the road and headed east in his Astro Van to pursue his career in TV and Film.
During his journey East, he raced his motorcycle in the 2019 Canadian Flat Track Series and lived in his Van down by a river.
JD is currently in Toronto living his dream as a Stunt performer and Actor.
You can find JD on set, in audition rooms, taking improv at Bad Dog theatre, and staying fit and having fun at the gym.
