Big News and Upcoming Events!

It has been a very busy summer, and I am eagerly looking forward to a productive few months ahead!

After finishing two shows this spring/summer, I jumped right into another project that I am very excited about! I am currently performing as a part of the immersive escape room experience, The Privilege of Escape. This project was created by Risa Puno and produced by Creative Time, and it is such a unique way to start conversations about privilege with countless folks. We have gotten wonderful response from press representatives, and most of the run is sold out already. We are running through 8/18, so come through

I have also just received word that I will be playing the role of Associate Pastor Joshua in The Christians at Lean Ensemble Theater in Hilton Head, South Carolina in January 2020. This is a role I played with Mill Mountain Theatre in May 2018, and I am foaming at the mouth to dive back into it. This play hits home for me for a lot of reasons, and Lucas Hnath's writing is a gift to actors. More than that, the play will be directed by Jay Briggs - who directed me at Mill Mountain as well. Jay is a wonderful collaborator who knows his stuff when it comes to religion, and I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to work under his guidance once again. So, if you feel like escaping NYC in the middle of winter, definitely come check out The Christians

Finally, I am beyond thrilled to share that I have officially signed with the team at Bona Fide Artists for representation for the next year! Bona Fide Artists is an all-female team of rockstars that have a strong commercial focus, and I cannot wait to see what we all can achieve together. Since signing two weeks ago, I have been out for multiple auditions and have been on hold for a project. I am taking this as a great sign for what's to come! 

Audition season is about to pick back up, so definitely check back in for updates soon!

A Very Busy Spring!

I cannot believe it is already almost halfway through the fifth month of 2019, but here we are! 

As promised, Beneath the Gavel rocked the world of Feinstein's/54 Below a few weeks ago. The response was vivacious, and the experience was unforgettable. There is nothing better than bringing such an unorthodox show to such a renowned performance space. 

In other news, The Unmaking of Toulouse-Lautrec had its official opening at Madame X last night! One week is down out of our eight week run, and we could not be more excited to share this show with the world. This is Bated Breath Theatre Company's longest standing run in the city, and I am so excited for this journey. Read more about it here

Finally, I will be working with the NYU Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging on another round of inexplicably meaningful and necessary on-camera work with a new client. I signed a paper promising I would not say more, but hopefully more information to come!

These first five months have been a riot, and I am cooking up plenty more for the rest of the year. Click back for more production photos and performance clips very soon!

Happy Spring!

2019 Starts in Italy!

This year started with an unforgettable opportunity to tour Italy with the cast of King Lear with Teatro delle Due. We spent two months traveling, performing and teaching in local high schools about Shakespeare. The audiences were wonderful, and the experience was simply incredible. I am so grateful for the opportunity to have worked on that tour. 

Now, I am back in the United States, and it's on to the next show! Right away, Bated Breath Theatre Company will be brining Beneath the Gavel to Feinstein's/54 Below once again in April! After our sold-out performance in September of 2018, 54 Below graciously invited us back for another round. Rehearsals start next week, and I could not be more excited!

Immediately following that, Bated Breath will be re-mounting The Unmaking of Toulouse-Lautrec in an exciting, site-specific production at the sexiest bar in Manhattan - Madame X. This is an intensely physical, quizzical piece about the mystery that was the man behind so many infamous paintings - and the beginnings of art as advertising: Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. This is going to be a sultry, eight week-long engagement, so buckle up, folks! Check it out!

In the meantime, production photos of King Lear  are up. I have also updated my resume and added a few clips or recent work for your perusal. Enjoy!

More to come. Stay tuned!

Final Thoughts - 2018

As 2018 winds down, I find myself often dwelling on gratitude. This year has been one of incredible growth and learning, and I am deeply grateful. The most important lesson I learned this year is that of deeper gratitude and respect for everyone in my industry. I am thankful that this industry creates so many jobs for so many folks. Working as an actor is such a minor cog in one enormous wheel. I think of the people that work the studios at Ripley-Grier or Pearl. The ushers at 59E59 Theaters, every single box office employee everywhere in the world, the countless security personnel for the larger venues - I am just grateful to be part of in industry that has a job for just about everyone. This year has widened my perspective in regards to the scope of the entertainment family. I have listed and re-listed my so-called 'accomplishments' from this year for myself, to remain grateful when times seem bleak. But, really, the thing I am most grateful for is the fact that any of us have jobs at all! I am just grateful to be a part of this incredible industry. I have added a few pictures from my most recent projects, and will be updating the video page too, but that's all for the year. Enjoy the holidays, and I'll be saying hello from Italy before you know it!

A Busy End to 2018

After a whirlwind of a beginning to this year, it is only getting busier! There is a whole lot of news to cover, so hang with me. 

First and foremost, I will be performing the remount of Beneath the Gavel at Feinstein's/54 Below next Friday (9/14) with Bated Breath Theatre Company. This show premiered at 59E59 Theaters in March 2017, and has been completely revamped specifically for 54 Below. This venue typically hosts cabaret performances, so our show will be a groundbreaking addition to their programming. I have been working on this project for almost a year now, and cannot be more excited to finally put it on its feet. The house is already close to selling out, so please get your tickets ASAP!

Following that, I will be performing in the premiere production of a play titled, Independent Study at the Tank. This play is an incisive look at the repercussions of widespread internet hate and the influence of modern tribal allegiance. The production will be directed by Flea Theatre Resident Director, Ran Xia, who I collaborated with on Pomegrenade at IRT Theater last year. This play is a firecracker, and I am in love with the project. Our first preview is November 1st, and we run through the 17th. Check out the official Tank info here

I also recently started my second year of working on one of the most meaningful projects I have ever been involved with: NYU Center for Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging, and their collaboration with Schele Williams (dir. Motown) and global law firm, DLA Piper. The thrust of this project is starting conversations about the difficult topics within diversity and inclusion in big law firms. I cannot speak highly enough about every single individual involved, or the importance of our message. While the performances for this project are closed to the public, the chance to work in this way is life-changing. Read more about the Center here

I had the privilege of collaborating with Ambe J. Photography on some new headshots, which have been added to this site for your perusal. Ambe is a wonder to work with, and I could not be more pleased with how these turned out. Headshots tend to make me a bit uncomfortable, and she made the process an absolute joy. Learn more about her and her work, if you like! 

Finally! I am over the moon about this last announcement. I will be joining the cast of the international tour of King Lear with Teatro Delle Due as Edmund, the infamous bastard. We will be touring our production around Italy throughout February and March 2019. We will supplement our performances with workshops in secondary schools in the region, focusing on accessing Shakespeare's texts. This is a dream project, and I cannot wait to learn more about the Italian culture! Check out Teatro Delle Due, and look out for a ton of pictures. 

It is going to be one hell of ending to 2018, and I cannot wait! Check back soon for more news!

Spring and Things

While Spring refuses to come, there is still plenty of developments happening!

I just wrapped shooting on the short film, Diary of Sad, with On the Go productions. This heartwarming first installment in a three-part series serves as a wonderful exploration of social anxiety. The shots in this film are just stunning, too. Here is a quick teaser for the project. Stay tuned for the final footage! 

I am less than a month away from my upcoming performance of Associate Pastor Joshua in Lucas Hnath's, The Christians, at Mill Mountain Theatre! This is a play riddled with biting questions about faith, what our words mean, and the responsibility of being a leader, and I cannot wait to get to work on it. Read more about Mill Mountain and their upcoming season here

I just received the final cut of the short film I worked on last year with Radiovisor, Honeymoon Phase. This nearly-silent short is the story of a newlywed couple grappling with their worries about unfaithfulness. It is haunting, to say the least. There has been talk of a screening, so I will hopefully have details about that soon! Have a look! (PW: honeymoon). 

Finally, Bated Breath Theatre Company has made enormous strides in the past few months. After establishing a base here in Brooklyn, New York, we expanded the company to include about twenty new artists. Since that time, we have been diligently training and devising multiple projects. I am beyond thrilled to announce that we will be remounting our Off Broadway production of Beneath the Gavel at the famed Broadway supper club, 54 Below! I am ecstatic to transform such a famous space in the dynamic way that Bated Breath is known for. We are already on their calendar of events, check it out

There are still a number of developments still in the air, as we all eagerly await the warmer weather of the coming months. As soon as they come about, I will detail them here. Check back soon!

'Tis the Season!

Nope, I don't mean the holidays. It's casting season, and there's so much going on! There are a lot of updates in this post, so hang with me. 

First, I am overjoyed to share that I will be playing Associate Pastor Joshua in Mill Mountain Theatre's spring production of Lucas Hnath's, The Christians. This is one of my favorite plays, and I could not be more excited to work on it in Roanoke, VA. Have a look at what Mill Mountain is all about here.

I have also been asked to take part in another outreach initiative being hosted by the Drama League. Playwright, Nilan Johnson and Nathaniel Claridad, Teaching Artist Extraordinaire, have organized the New Vision/New Voices Educational Program this year, which is devoted to teaching young artists about the art of directing. A key component of the class is to direct a scene with professional actors. So we will be staging some scenes, and having a showcase in early March. Check out this program and all that Drama League does for the arts community here

Finally! I will be performing in the staged reading premiere of a Nancy Irene Kelly's play, Backyard/Desert on behalf of Transcendence Theatre Collective on Thursday (2/15). Transcendence is a brand new company seeking an exciting new work to premiere for their inaugural season, and this play is a candidate. I am a fiend for developing new plays, and could not be happier to contribute to this process. Grab tickets here, and have a look at what Transcendence is all about here

Whew! Okay, that was a lot. I feel better now. Kinda hungry. 

Anyway, keep checking in for more updates soon!

New Year News!

Well, 2017 finished in a blur, and here we are in the new year! The year is off to a very busy start, with plenty of news to share. I have spent the past few months working and performing with the NYU School of Law's Center for Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging on a life-changing project. The Center has developed scripts for performance that address issues of diversity and inclusion in both law firms and law schools. We have performed in New York, Washington D.C., San Francisco, and we continue on to San Diego and Chicago this year. Check out the Center and its incredible team, they really are changing the game at NYU and elsewhere. 

Bated Breath Theatre Company has come into the new year swinging as well! We are holding auditions to expand our company within the next few weeks, and we have already incorporated some exciting new collaborators. Read about our continuing work as we devise and train into the year. 

Finally, I am tickled to tell you about my upcoming debut in New York Shakespeare Exchange's ShakesBEER Pub Crawl in conjunction with the NYC Irish Festival! I will be playing Ford from Shakespeare's Merry Wives of Windsor and Percival in Shaw's Misalliance alongside some phenomenal actors. Please come drink beer and watch us perform ridiculous Shakespeare in some great lower Manhattan mainstay pubs with us! I think there is a discount code for tickets floating around out there. Contact me directly for info!

Keep checking in for more updates.  :)

End-of-Summer Updates

It feels like summer just started. What happened?!

These past few months have been refreshing, with many opportunities to meet other artists and learn from a variety of people in the industry. I have spent some time working with Brickabrack Ensemble and Bated Breath Theatre Company, focusing on ensemble development and fascinating composition work. The brief reprieve from performing was well needed!

There are plenty of things developing quickly for the fall, however. I am currently in rehearsals for the premiere Ran Xia's new play, Pomegrenade at IRT Theater. The play will open on September 16th as part of the 3B Developmental Series. The play parallels the legend of Hades' (of God of Underworld fame) abduction of Persephone with the recent events in and surrounding the nation of Syria. The writing is achingly beautiful and heartfelt, and the play is deeply moving. I will be playing the role of Ares, the God of War. I sincerely cannot wait to perform this piece. 

The tour of Open Arts Alliance's production of Alice in Wonderland continues on into the school year, with more opportunities to perform for folks across Connecticut. So, if you would like to see me playing with puppets and wearing some of my favorite costumes to date, feel free to have a look!

Finally, I will be touring and performing with NYU Law School's Division of Inclusion and Diversity. We will be performing in New York and Washington D.C. throughout the fall. I am looking forward to the opportunity to travel and perform such meaningful material. 

Looking forward to the fall!

New Representation!!

I'm over the moon to announce that I have signed with the Legit department of FireStarter Entertainment, and will be working with them for the foreseeable future. After meeting Ms. Nicole Dernersesian and Ms. Sasso, I had no doubt in my mind they were the agency I wanted to work with. I am beyond thankful for the opportunity, and am hopeful about the year ahead! Read more about the agency and what their clients have been getting up to recently!

Spring Fever!

Spring has come, and has brought with it a bunch of new adventures! I am about to wrap shooting for the upcoming short film, Honeymoon Phase, which will hopefully be headed to the festival circuit in the future. Pictures from the shoot are now in my Gallery. I am also working with Brickabrack Ensemble, the originally San Francisco-based physical theatre company, on the development of an original project set to perform in July. In May, I will performing in a few fun Shakespeare events. On May 1st, I will be part of a staged reading of A Midsummer Night's Dream at a pub in midtown NYC, where the cast will be assigned their parts minutes before the reading. Shakespeare-themed drinking games and audience interaction will abound. Have a look! I am also penciled in to perform with New York Shakespeare Exchange once again. This time, I will be a part of their famed ShakesBEER Pub Crawl. Stay tuned for details. In the meantime, you can read about previous ShakesBEER events here. Looking forward to more adventures as the summer approaches!

Off Broadway Debut Underway!

Performances for Beneath the Gavel are underway and going well! It is such a privilege to be a part of Bated Breath Theatre Company's Off Broadway premiere. I have a deep love for this ensemble of actors and all of the artists involved. The reviews have run the spectrum, but the audience's nightly reaction has been incredible. The piece is as challenging as it is fun to perform. We have two weeks of performances left. Most of the tickets for the rest of this week are sold, but next week is looking good. Check out tickets here. I've added some photos from the production that you can peek at as well! Hoping to see you there! 

Feb 10, 2017

Plenty of Good News!

It has been a very busy start to the year!  

I recently made my television debut, appearing as a lead role in Mysteries at the Museum, Ep. 406 on Travel Channel. Stay tuned for the air date, and possibly some sneak peak footage. You can see a photo from the shoot here

I also had the privilege of working with the wonderful folks at Scary Mommy on a project about the perils of breastfeeding in the workplace. I was lucky enough to play the frightened intern and make some really fun, ugly (fugly?) faces. The video is now over 2,000,000 views on Facebook! Have a look!

I have had one rehearsal for my upcoming Off Broadway project, Beneath the Gavel, and am about to jump into the full rehearsal process. We received a great little promotional write-up in Broadway World, and I'm hearing there's more to come. 

I will also be joining the touring cast of the Open Arts Alliance production of Alice in Wonderland in March. Open Arts Alliance is a Connecticut-based company that brings theatre to folks in schools, hospitals, retirement homes and the community at large. Their goal is to mobilize everyone they can with theatre. Plenty more updates to come about this tour soon. 

I am slated to appear on Cherry TV later this month. I will also be shooting a film come April. More details to come on both of those opportunities. 

It has been a busy, fun year so far and I am really looking forward to see what the next few months have in store!

I am a part of the ensemble set to perform Beneath the Gavel with Bated Breath Theatre Company Off Broadway at 59E59 Theaters in March! This story will be a physically-driven, imaginative and interactive exploration of the world of art and auction houses. I have a distinct feeling it is going to be wild for performers and audience alike!

Fall Update!

Gah, there is so much to talk about! As fall works its way toward winter, projects are beginning to pile up! Here's what I've been up to recently, and what's coming up next. I recently shot a short film, Be a Hero, and should be sharing footage of that very soon. I also recently had the chance to work with a host of really incredible directors: Jaki Bradley (Assoc. Director, Fool for Love), Portia Krieger (Assoc. Director, Fun Home), Peter Duchan (Playwright, Dogfight Lavender Scare), Adrienne Campbell-Holt (Assoc. Director, Dear Evan Hansen),  and Rob Askins (Playwright, Hand to God). Their insight was incisive and on-the-nose, and I learned a great deal. 

Also! I have recently started working with the wonderful people at The Talentbook, and am excited to a part of such a killer agency. 

Coming up, I will be shooting another short film entitled, Anxiety. I am also shooting a project for the Merchant Marine Museum in the near future that will take us back to 1944 for a brief moment. Finally, I have just been asked to take part in a project in March that is going to be an absolute game-changer. I cannot say anymore at the moment, but I am beyond thrilled for this next opportunity. 

Stay tuned for a whole lot more great things to come!

Down the Rabbit Hole!

Today, I went down the rabbit hole, and went down and down and down! I had the chance to perform in the Open Arts Alliance workshop production of their upcoming tour of Lewis Carroll's, Alice in Wonderland. It was a physically demanding, imaginatively charged experience that was as much fun as it was educational. I was lucky enough to play almost every part in the show, and really explore each one in countless new ways. I love this story, and I am so thankful for the chance to have met such wonderful people while doing great work. Check out Open Arts Alliance and all of the really interesting things they are getting up to here

A Hotel in Eden by Jackson K. Hanks - A Journey

For the past five months, I have been developing a new play with my good friends and colleagues, Jackson K. Hanks and Nathaniel P. Claridad. Mr. Hanks wrote an incredible new work, A HOTEL IN EDEN, that absolutely had to be produced. So, after some development and submissions, we were accepted into the Thespis Festival. After countless more rewrites and readings and a bit of rehearsal, we are now putting this brand new play up at the Hudson Guild Theatre tonight. Producing this piece has redefined the way I approach the theatre, and I am forever grateful for the opportunity. It was an absolute privilege to be a part of this. Learn more about our little play here.

Come See Me Play a Con Artist!

I will be joining the cast of The Unknowns, written by Kacie Devaney, playing the role of Clive! 

This play is about a seemingly normal encounter between an unhappy couple in a nice neighborhood and their new neighbors. On the surface, everything seems fine, but...Well, come and see!

 

We will be performing at the Strawberry One Act Festival in July. Kacie Devaney is a phenomenal, burgeoning playwright, and Strawberry is one of the festivals I have been dying to take part in. Needless to say, I'm over the moon about this opportunity, and sincerely look forward to being a part of such a great communal theatre event. 

 

While the festival itself runs from July 14-31, The Unknowns will play July 14th (7PM), 17th (7PM), and 25th (9PM).

2nd Annual Indie Theatre One Minute Play Festival

This week I performed as part of the 2nd Annual Indie Theare One Minute Play Festival at the New Ohio Theatre.

It was a humbling experience, and a rowdy celebration of theatre. Please read more about this festival and keep tabs on it as it moves throughout the country. Just follow the link at the bottom. I am already looking forward to next year!

Web Series Premiere!

Recently, I had the privilege of working on a web series entitled, The Department of Moving On. The series is set in a modern, yet other-worldly office, devoted to assisting souls with their departure form mortal life. The description sounds grim, but the story is truly the opposite. I am so grateful for the opportunity to contribute to such a heartfelt project with such a wonderful crew of folks at WInning Horse Productions. 

 

This web series is now live on YouTube and eagerly waiting to be seen! Give it a look! The link is included below.
