Now, I'm not usually one to toot my own horn...but I do play the trumpet pretty well. That being said, I am an actor. I have been acting for little more than a decade, at this point. My first experience as a thespian began in high school, where I quickly covered all aspects of the stage; from the greenroom to the booth, from techie work to the musical cabarets. But, it was the improv comedy troupe that caught my attention the most. All four years were spent with that troupe, the last two of which, I ran the group myself. Before graduation, I was awarded a Cappie nomination for my role as the Cat in the Hat in "Seussical", and a Cappie award win for my role as Ferris Layman in "The Diviners".
College gave me the massive growth and development as an artist that I had been craving for. I owe those professors at Fullerton College everything, they are incredible individuals, with nothing but passion for the arts. After a dozen main stage productions at FJC (where I played everything from a shy New York gangster, to a perverted pet store employee; a loving holocaust prisoner, to a racist Southern drunk; a retired doctor trying to get laid, to Dr. Frankenstein), I graduated with an Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship Nomination for my performance as Dr. Dorn in "The Seagull", as well as the FJC Actor of the Year award for both 2010 and 2011.
Since graduating from college, I have found my way through several acting endeavors. The most prominent being an incredible murder-mystery-dinner-theatre company known as "The Gourmet Detective", which I have now been a part of for over eight years. For a while, I really developed my physical theatre side by becoming a clown with "ClownMA dell'Arte", I have performed as several different characters at several different childrens' parties with "Creative Parties for Kids", and was even a part of the original cast of Buena Park's dinner theatre show "Teatro Martini".
