My name is Ace Anderson but everyone calls me Ace. I am a professional Actor, Graphic Designer & Photographer. I began a career as a full-time graphic designer in 2013 after I graduated from SMU with a BFA in Acting. Working full-time gave me the experience and clientele to start my own design company (The Striped Heart). Since 2015 I've been fortunate enough to work for myself to progress my company forward. I've studied acting since 2002 after graduation I signed with The Campbell Agency and in 2016 became a proud member of the Brierly Resident Acting Company with the Dallas Theater Center. My most recent theater credits include All The Way (DTC), Brothers Size (Jubilee Theater), Blood Weeding (Cara Mia Theater).
I've been recognized across the country as a pioneer in the arts. In 2014 I won Best Actor in Dallas for my role in August Wilson's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. I was also handpicked as one of 100 Top Creatives (No. 36). As a designer and photographer I love working with movement and exploring the human body as a work of art. Google 'Ace Anderson' and you'll find much of my work. My greatest asset is my creative outlook on life. I've been engrossed in the world of the arts since I was very young. They way art moves and inspires people is what keeps me going. Fortunately, in ever-fluid career, I easily adapt to every environment and it makes me an incredibly fast learner. I think I was born to be a connector and a leader and I strongly believe we were put on this earth to create. Therefor it is my ultimate goal to keep art and creative alive and well for as long as I live. People say I'm not funny...
