Early life[edit]

He attended the University of Louisville where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Theatre. For several years he worked as a stage actor and director.

Acting career[edit]

In 1997, he moved into acting for film and television. In 1998 (during a four-month period), he played three different villainous roles on Xena: Warrior Princess. One of the roles gave him the distinction of being victim to Gabrielle (Renee O'Connor) in the "infamous Drool scene" (as named by Xena fans) from the episode, In Sickness and In Hell.

In 2005 he appeared in New Zealand's medical soap opera Shortland Street as nurse 'Liam Todd', caregiver to Dr. Chris Warner's twin sister, Amanda Warner (Marissa Stott).

In 2007 he revived the voice of Alpha 6 from the long running Power Rangers series.[1]

In 2010 Cooley featured in the fantasy horror film Wound, which was directed by David Blyth.[2]

In 2013 he appears as the voice of Admiral Malkor on the 20th season of Power Rangers series, Power Rangers Megaforce.

Voice acting[edit]

He has done numerous international radio and TV ad campaigns along with regular voice work for Power Rangers, Legend of the Seeker and Sam Raimi's, Spartacus: Blood and Sand and Spartacus: Gods of the Arena.[3] He also appears as the voice of Oak, a NPC bandit in the game Path of Exile, a free diablo-like RPG made by Grinding Gear Games.[4]

Directing career[edit]

He is also an award-winning short-film maker. His first short The Hit, (made for $95) went on to immediately win several awards and was purchased by The Rialto Channel. His second film, Mrs Bracegirdle's Woodlyn Park Adventure (made for $450) was only submitted to one festival where it earned another "Most promising film maker award". His next short film, The Heist was also purchased by The Rialto Channel, and has screened in several festivals across Europe. In April 2009, the film was bestowed a "Highly Commended Award" (in the category of self-funded films) by the Magma Short Film Festival.
