Wait. You have two names?
Alright, my legal last name is Sczempka. However, as I started to pursue professional acting, it quickly became clear that having a last name no one can pronounce is tricky. So I latched onto my mother's easily-marketable maiden name Bond and have balanced both names ever since. I keep my legal last name when working as a producer, and use Bond strictly as a stage name. Make sense?
I'm Cameron Bond-Sczempka and I was born in beautiful San Diego, CA. I grew up in a performing arts family with two older sisters performing before I was even born. For carpool reasons, it just made sense for my parents to drop me off at rehearsals too. Therefore the first musical I performed in I was a black sheep and ear of corn wearing pull up diapers under my costume in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. *Footage available*
Yet throughout my whole life, it's always felt natural for me to have a wide range of creative interests and passions, which is sometimes hard to summarize my profession easily. If I had to, I guess I'd say I’m a 'creative producing, project managing, advertisement video content specialist, guitar and piano playing, professional Broadway and TV/Film singer/actor, with a unique ability to entertain large crowds of people' with an underlying principle to tell captivating stories in the interest to entertain people. It's a craft.
For the past 10 years, I've been bouncing around creative agencies, Fortune 50 companies, acting on Broadway stages and national tours, working at production houses, producing national commercials, short films, and even a few web series. The list of clients and shows I have worked for include: Be More Chill (Bway), Nike, Progressive, Finding Neverland (Bway), Peloton, Jetblue, Pantene, Head and Shoulders, Beauty and the Beast (tour, cruise), Target, Samsung, MasterCard, Sprint, CNN, and Vera Wang. I'm very lucky to have met a lot of bright, talented, and inspiring people along the way, and I love the power of collaboration.
Currently, I'm the Senior Business Development Manager at an EdTech Startup called Chem101. I'm also finishing up production of my debut Short Film titled “Bury Me In Armor" starring the legendary actor Ed Asner which is set to make its round in the film festival circuit next year.
I'm always looking for collaborators to produce, write, act, and create with, so please don't hesitate to reach out!
