My Story so far
A Chicago area native, my first stage appearance was as an unnamed Montague in a 7th grade production of Romeo & Juliet. After attending Interlochen Arts Camp in high school, I decided to make Acting my career. I was accepted into Boston University's prestigious School of Theatre, where I received an intensive training in all aspects of Movement, Linklater Voice Technique, Alexander Technique, On Camera, Stage Combat, Physical Theatre, Shakespeare, and multiple acting techniques. As part of this program I studied abroad at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, where I earned a certificate in classical acting. While there, I studied with renowned British classical actor John Baxter (one of Peter Hall's main actors) and Clowning master Mark Bell (the creator of 'The Play That Goes Wrong' on Broadway), among others. While training in Boston, I appeared in professional productions with the Huntington Theatre Company and Boston Playwrights Theatre. I was also selected to be one of a quartet of college students to sing with Anthony Rapp for the premier of his book "Without You". I graduated cum laude from Boston University with a B.F.A in Acting.
Post graduation, I moved to Chicago and began a busy professional career. Chicago area credits include work with The Court Theater, First Folio Theatre, The Building Stage, Chicago Dramatists, Theatre Building Chicago, The Metropolis Performing Arts Center, Bailiwick Chicago, Hubris Productions, and others. I have also been employed as a children's theatre actor with groups such as the Windy City Players and Caton Enterprises. I maintain a commercial career, appearing in multiple commercials, industrials and print ads, represented by Karen Stavins Ltd and the DeSanti Talent Agency for companies such as Firestone Tires, Strack and Van Til Groceries, and Cricket Wireless. I have appeared in several independent films in Chicago and Boston.
In addition to being an actor, I am an AmSAT certified Alexander Technique teacher working with performing artists and others through my north side studio Freedom In Motion Alexander Technique.
As a musician, I am influenced by my roots in Jewish Classical and Folk-infused music. I am a trained vocalist with a versatile tenor range and the ability to handle styles from rock to light opera. I play guitar, and am currently working on an expanding my career as a singer songwriter. I have released one EP online and written original music for two theatrical productions.
