A Bit About Me....
I'm an actor/singer from Long Island, NY who has been performing regionally and on tour since 2012. What started as a way to stay close to my late grandpa, Otto (an avid community theatre performer), performing has become my dream and career.
Between attending St Joseph's College for Marketing (gotta have a background) and Theatre, I studied at the New York Film Academy, Gateway Acting School, trained in improv with the Upright Citizens Brigade, and have worked (and still do) with private coaches and tutors.
Meanwhile, I've worked for three years at Theatre Three Productions as a member of their repertory company, toured for three years with How The Grinch Stole Christmas! national tour, worked regionally at some great places like the Broadway Palm, Patchogue Theatre, Argyle Theatre, Theatre By The Sea, John W. Engeman Theater, and performed with some amazing fellow actors & directors (including some Tony Award winners).
When I'm not performing, you can find me reading (plays, biographies, whatcha got?), drawing, hanging with my girlfriend, Amanda, a little baking here and there, and watching Monty Python sketches and Parks and Rec seasons on repeat.
I love what we do, and I'm far from done.
