Mini Bio (1)

Morgan has been involved in the Chinese martial arts for 15 years. Following his passion, at age 18 he moved to China to study at the Beijing Sports University where he mastered Long Fist Kung Fu. Once ascending to the top of his class in just a couple of years, he was admitted to the prestigious Shi Cha Hai sports academy, former training grounds of Jet Li, and many of China's top Olympic athletes.

Never letting his love for training lag behind his early career development, while auditioning for and performing in various Chinese historical dramas, TV commercials, game shows and more, he began training in gymnastics under private instruction at Shi Cha Hai. This led to his interest in doing film stunt work as he grew fond of the tumbling and feats of strength that martial arts stunts demanded.

His ability and enthusiasm was well-noted by Jackie Chan whom he worked with in "The Forbidden Kindom" (2008), and also by David Carradine whom he worked with in "Last Hour" (2008).

Morgan was in high-demand as a martial arts actor in China, but after nearly 10 years away from his friends and family, he's recently returned to the US to continue his acting and film career in LA.
