"An actor is part illusionist,
part artist, part ham."
My acting journey began when I was a child in upstate New York. The love of theater has been with me through college and my adult life. I act on stage, and have also worked on small film and PSA projects over the years. I've had the honor of working with companies on both coasts and owned my own theatre for ten years in California. I'm a non union actor who has focused on straight plays (comedy and drama), but have performed in musicals, as well. I have worked with many professional level community theaters in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and, California. Most recently, I worked with Sierra Repertory Theatre, a regional company in Sonora, CA. In December 2019, I sold my theatre and moved to the mountains full time.
So here I am...excited for new opportunities!
I opened Limelight Actors Theater in January 2011. Over the course of 45 plays, 5 musicals and 2 cabaret runs, the theater was honored with "Best Theater South County" and "Best Theater Gilroy" awards every year. In 2018 we were a Theatre Bay Area Awards Nominee (San Francisco) in three categories. Best Actress, Best Director and Best Production of "The Last 5 Years". We were also a TBA Recommended Production for "The Velocity of Autumn" in 2019. (A show I directed and starred in). At the same time, I was an Executive Director of an Art Center for ten years and have served on several boards in the Arts. During the years I owned my theater, I was a one man show wearing many hats. Artistic Director, Marketing Manager, Set Designer, House Manger, Director, Actor, Janitor and everything in between.
In between acting and directing at my theatre, I started to write a series of plays. My goal was to initially produce them at Limelight, but time ran out and a global pandemic hit. On the upside, I have had a lot of time to write, rewrite and work the plays.
My favorite genre is Comedy with a little Drama, or "Dramadies". My second favorite is Drama, particularly family dramas, and my third is a good mystery.
Currently, I have three separate plays (Comedy with a splash of Drama) centered around a family of diverse, dysfunctional, hysterical personalities you can't help but love.
In the works is a drama centered around the aging patriarch of family, a funny, touching reunion of three sisters of a certain age and a journey of one man's life from cradle to tomb.
Stay tuned for more!
