the multi-talented Dell is an accomplished actor, a musician and composer, and an expert on fitness, health and nutrition. He has crystallized his eclectic interests into his current role as a motivator and positive force for change.
Born and raised in Canada, Dell works around North America while maintaining a home-base in Orange County, California. As a medal-winning athlete, Dell has a deep understanding of what it takes, emotionally and physically, to excel in the elite sports world. He imparts that knowledge through a thriving consulting business, which he juggles with his demanding acting career. Moving easily from on-camera work to projects as a film and television sports advisor, he also trains top North American and European athletes in tennis, track, football and basketball. Dell is currently translating his hard-won, hands-on knowledge about nutrition for health and vitality into a book, Eating Left Because Right Didn’t Work, written for anyone who wants to feel and look better.

A former national spokesperson for Multiple Sclerosis, he has also donated his talents to the Canadian Cancer Society and the Alberta Lung Association. A passionate advocate for non-violence and anti-drug programs, Dell dreams of one day establishing a basketball camp for kids. He is also currently developing several children’s book ideas.
Early in his performing career he starred in the Canadian stage hit, The Black and Gold Review, where his vocal range, ready wit and transcending charm captivated sold-out audiences and garnered rave reviews. In his spare time, he indulges this life-long passion for music with composing and informal nightclub performances as a pianist and singer in his favorite local hangout.
Dell made his national TV debut on the hit Cosby spin-off TV series A Different World. Other credits include guest and co-starring roles in: Navy NCIS, The Young and The Restless, Malcolm and Eddie, That 70s Show, Psi Factor, Mean Streak, First Wave and Queer as Folk.
