Rydell is a Director/Performer with many years performing in front and behind the camera. He has recently been nominated for the NBC Directors Program. His experience as not only an entertainer, but a Child and Family Therapist and Military NCO has taken him around the globe. Although his heart will always be in his home state of Alabama, and a long stint in the Northwest, his home now rests on the sandy beaches of Southern California. The main objective of Rydell's life is to experience it fully and to live with no regrets. With the successful completions of directing several features, he looks to expand his career as a Director/Actor (among other talents) all the while helping fellow Veterans, and others who seek growth, grow in the industry we know as Show Bizz. While starting his own independent production company, Ynot Sin Pelo Ent, he has helped create jobs for fellow Veterans and Non Vets alike. With his give back/share model he has provided them a safe environment to make mistakes without the stigma of being judged.
