Jeff Bower
          
 
Jeff Bower was born and raised in the small city of Auburn, New York. He has come a long way since his theatrical debut as Farmer MacGregor in his Kindergarten play of Peter Rabbit, but his love for acting has remained strong.

Jeff received his BA in Mathematics from SUNY Binghamton and his MFA in Acting from Florida Atlantic University. His thesis role of Joshua in Corpus Christi, written by Terrence McNally, caused quite a stir, culminating in the Florida State legislature nearly stripping FAU of sixty million dollars in funding.

Upon completion of his degree at FAU, Mr. Bower spent a year as a full time company member with the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company before returning to south Florida.

Mr. Bower remained in Florida for seven years, where he was a founding member of the faculty at G-Star School of the Arts. He eventually became chair of the Theatre Department and helped create the curriculum and the award winning standard still carried out by the school to this day.

Jeff stayed active and busy as a professional actor over this time, appearing in numerous independent films, commercials, and over twenty-five theatre productions. Rude Mechanical Productions (or RMP for short) was a resident professional theatre company of which Jeff was a co-founder and served as Artistic Director for five years. During that time he was an integral part in all fifteen productions the company produced.

A number of his independent films went on to great success; 2005 Best Actor Award at the Palm Beach International Film Festival: Local Voices of Film for his role in the short film, Pissed, 2007 Best Picture/Best Screenplay at the Palm Beach International Film Festival: Local Voices of Film for his work in the short film, Driver Seat, 2006 3rd place finish at the E-Incubator Competition for his work in the short film Feenix 4 X 1,000.

In 2010, Jeff and his wife Ivelyn sold everything they owned that wouldn't fit in their car, packed up their two cats and drove across the country to Los Angeles, California, leaving his years of teaching behind to focus on becoming a full time actor.
