Mr. Wirth attended Collegiate Prep School in Manhattan and Brown University
in Providence, RI.

Discovered by photographer Bruce Weber while at Brown University he started
modeling in NYC in the mid 80's for such magazines as Seventeen, GQ,
Interview, and teen magazines.

While at Brown he did his first Diet Pepsi Commercial before moving on to
television and movies. His first television show was The Equalizer and moved
to LA to start an acting career. His first movie was Seven Minutes In Heaven.
Fifteen years later he is fine tuning his craft and has moved on to being behind the camera.

Besides acting, he is also serious about writing,directing, and shows his
artwork in many California galleries.

Having completed a Short Film, Kismet, in 1999, he moved on to his first full
length Independent film, MacArthur Park, for which he was the writer, director
and producer.

This film has been screened at the Sundance Film Festival 2001(Grand Prize
nominee), Taos Talking Picture Festival (Land Grant nominee), and Seattle
International Film Festival 2001 as part of the Black Experience in Films.
MacArthur Park is screening in September at the Side Walk Moving Picture

He now has a band called "The Cronies" they are currently working on a
acoustic CD with music written by Mr.Wirth and Steven Costentino. He will be

and at the present time is working on a documentary that combines the plight
of the homeless, one of Mr. Wirths long time interests and a strong force
behind the making of MacArthur Park.
