to be moved,

to love,

to hope,

to tremble,

to live."

Who's this guy?

From the onset of human history, people have been telling stories. Most of the stories that get passed down from generation to generation feature characters who seem larger than life. Mythology and hyperbole aside, these characters are no larger or more extraordinary than you or I; they are simply human. As humans, we inhabit the same Earth, feel the same emotions, and even share 99.9% of our DNA with one another. That’s why we go to the theater or read novels — because every story has something that everyone can relate to. Every emotion you have ever felt, be it joy, grief, anger, fear, excitement, etc. has, on a fundamental level, been felt by every single person you have ever met. Allowing these feelings is incredibly vulnerable, but it’s these very feelings that make us human. So my job, essentially, is to be a human being and tell stories about other human beings.

I caught the acting bug when I walked into a class called The Craft Gym (now The Folster Studio), taught by Sean Folster. Mind you, I was a shy kid from a small town, and I saw these actors doing things that absolutely terrified me. I thought there was absolutely no way I could ever do these things even in my own apartment, much less in front of an audience. Subconsciously, I knew that if it scared me that much, it was exactly what I needed, so I signed up that day.

 

I have trained in a wide array of principles and techniques dealing with emotional availability and preparation, instrumental and physical work, script analysis, and character development, for both stage and screen.

Let's get to work.
