Who Am I?

I'm an actor, singer, husband and father.

I live in the NYC area (Jersey suburbs, gotta raise a family you know).  It's been an amazing ride here in the Northeast.  I'm originally from Virginia, grew up back and forth between there and North Carolina, but I found my way to New York City in my mid-twenties.  A lot of jobs, loves, highs and lows led me to adulthood, where I am happily married and the father of two amazing children.

As for my work, I've been seen on Broadway in the 2013 revival of Jekyll & Hyde (Swing, Fight Captain) and in 2008's A Tale of Two Cities (Ensemble, Sydney Carton u/s).  Off-Broadway:  El Gallo in The Fantasticks, standby for Bill Clinton in Clinton, the Musical, Man #1 in Not Another Christmas Letter (NYC Premiere), and Peter the toymaker in The Toymaker  at the New York Musical Festival.  

Out on the road:  South Pacific and The Full Monty (both at Paper Mill Playhouse), Showboat at the Goodspeed Opera House,  Kiss Me, Kate at the Flat Rock Playhouse, 1776 at the Olney Theatre Center, Camelot at the Geva Theatre Center, and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum at Pennsylvania Shakespeare.  National Tours include Jekyll & Hyde, Showboat, 1776 and The Sound of Music.

There's some more stuff, but the short version is, I worked hard and got lucky.  And I'm a long way from done.

 
 

Your family will make all your successes greater, and your failures less painful.
