Haney resides in Lake Worth, Fla., and he has been interested in acting as long as he can remember.
When asked what kind of "thing" is acting, Haney gave a personal response.
"Acting is a feeling thing, not a thinking thing. Actors feel, are expressive, and have a point of view."
Haney's passion for acting is expressed in his own work as an actor and in his teaching others as well.
"The best training I have had was in L.A. from 1993 to 2000 under the direction of Jeff Goldblum! He taught the Sanford Meisner Technique...the same one that I teach!"
Acting and teaching it are not Haney's only interests.
"I want to produce and direct films in South Florida and in L.A.!"
To learn more about Haney's acting school go to his website.
"I can be found at Palm Beach Acting School."
