I came to acting later in life, lured by the adventure of walking in other people’s shoes. In theater, I’ve played a wide range of roles, including Richard Nixon, King Henry IV, Malvolio, James Tyrone, Jr., Holofernes, Dr. Caius, Brabantio, and others, at theaters such as The American Shakespeare Center, The Springer Opera House, The Arden Theatre Co., Walnut Street Theatre, The Alliance for New Music-theatre (where I’m a company member,) Mt. Hood Repertory Theatre, and Northwest Classical Theatre. I earned my MFA at the U. of Houston Professional Actor Training Program, under Jack Young.
In 2015, I shifted my focus to on-camera acting, and have begun to build a modest but real body of work in film, tv, and print. I continue to study on-camera acting with Bob Krakower-trained Vance Barber.
Before becoming an actor I wrote for small town newspapers, taught high school English, dabbled in academic philosophy, and explored much of the American west, often on motorcycle. When not acting, I can be found scuba diving, bicycling, skiing, motorcycling, and writing. I split my time between DC and NYC.
