About Me

A Lifetime of Acting


I've been acting up all my life. Ten years ago, I started a non-profit Theater company - Troupe of Friends - that mounts free Shakespeare in the park each summer. I recently turned  professional, and am a proud member of both SAG-AFTRA and Actor's Equity

Available for Projects


I act both on stage and screen. I am also available for voice over acting. Please see my resumé for the details of my experience and skills.

Current Projects


For the last year, I have been attending classical theater workshops. I recently presented a workshop on Acting from The First Folio at the 2018 British Shakespeare Association's annual conference in Belfast.
