AN OBSESSION WITH THE HUMAN CONDITION

I am a professional actor, singer and dancer originally from Niagara Falls, NY. I studied theater performance at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts at the Playwrights Horizons Theater School and The State University of New York at Buffalo, where I received my BFA in musical theater performance.  I have what can only be described as an obsession with the human condition, the entire spectrum of human emotion and the countless ways we choose to interact with each other. The art of embodying a character, creating a personal history and breathing life into their being on stage, is what makes me tick. Understanding the experiences of people from every corner of life and delving into why they do what they do and what makes them tick, is what gets me out of bed in the morning.

A city boy, through and through

I have lived and worked in many places, small towns, big cities and rural places like Chenango Forks, NY (yes, that's actually the name of a rural town in Upstate NY). After all that roaming I've discovered, I'm a city boy through and through and I currently call Buffalo, NY homebase. I find it hard to live in a place that isn't rich with all types of art, people from all walks of life, loads of coffee shops, big ol' city libraries and seemingly endless, walkable, slightly grungy city-burbs.  The hum of a city, the tucked away neighborhood haunts and the constant motion of people and their energy, ideas and creativity, fuel me and provide me the inspiration and opportunity to continually grow and develop my craft.

Thanks for taking the time to learn a little about me and why I chose this profession. I hope you explore the rest of my contiually developing site and feel free to chat with me via my "contact" page.
