A Little About Me

A well-rounded artist.

I tag myself as an Actor, Musician, and Playwright because those are the pursuits in which I believe I can greatest serve the audience.  However, I believe that familiarizing myself with as many aspects of this world as possible can only serve me and my collaborators.  To that end, I've also worked as a scenic carpenter and dabbled in directing, sound, etc.

Actor

I'm an actor first.  It is the thing I pour the greatest labor and love into.  I believe it is the greatest service I can provide for myself and others to dedicate myself to truthfully exposing the beating, human heart of a character for all to see.

Musician

I had a tenuous early relationship with music, attempting and then quitting a litany of instruments. Around 10 years ago, I picked up a guitar and fell in love.  I have had the pleasure to compose and perform original music for several different productions and through those experiences have had the opportunity to learn more about my instrument.  I now enjoy flirting with any instrument that comes my way, having tinkered with a ukulele, a bass, some pan pipes, and more.

Playwright

I always knew I wanted to write.  I really began playwriting in college.  Through the one course my school offered, 24-Hour Play Festivals, student produced opportunities, I practiced as much as I could.  I am now in the early days of believing that the plays I write are pieces of work with the merit to serve an audience.

The Rest

I enjoy hiking, reading, and television.  I began performing as a professional magician when I was ten years-old and still enjoy magic on occasion.  For the great majority of my life, I believed I was walking down the path of a scientist.  I specialized in nano-materials engineering.  I've found, ultimately, that these pursuits are one and the same.  We reach out into the unknown and report our findings.  It is an enlivening task that I'm constantly excited to be engaged in.
