Acting for me is about loving regular people.
I got my real intrudction to the stage doing Shakespeare in the park down by my cousin's neighborhood pond. The wonderful, late Catherine Thomas would bring everyone together: moms, kids, lifeguards, soccer coaches, everyone together to put on a show. Sometimes they were incredible. But they were always important. I think, as an artist, this has had the biggest impact on me. It always comes back to "regular people" and real communities for me.
Nitty gritty stuff? I have my BA in Acting from Emerson College. I did a bunch of shows there ("Angels in America" [Prior], "Middletown" [Mechanic], "Fathers and Sons" [Arkady], "The Grapes of Wrath" [Noah], "Flapjack" [Soldier - Lead] ) and learned a lot about a lot from a lot of wonderful people.
Currently, I'm collaborating as a theater artist in the New York / Brooklyn scene with artists that I get along well with :) I'm also taking whatever time and money I have to study Action Theater under Ruth Zaporah, Suzuki/Viewpoints at SITI Company, and open ballet at the Joffrey Ballet School.
Professional credits include: Washington DC: The Maryland Renaissance Festival ("Much Ado About Nothing [Verges]") and Chesapeake Shakespeare Co. ("Romeo & Juliet" [Paris]). Los Angeles: ("300 Bones: A New Musical" [Ensemble]) New York: The Tank Outfest (Ex-Gay: The Musical" [Matthew]), HERE FEST ("Force et Confiance" [Edward - Lead])
