An abbreviated timeline
At age 15, I made my theatrical debut as Benvolio in my high school's production of "Romeo and Juliet."
In the 15 years since, I have been a part of over 200 productions, predominantly working as a director, actor, and lighting designer. I've also stage managed, worked in a box office, built costumes, painted sets, and constructed flats. In short, I'm ready for anything the theatre can throw at me.
