I’m an actor.
I started in the theatre as a kid, logged my undergrad years at FSU, began my professional career with a national tour of Molière, then settled in Atlanta where I worked steadily for a decade, playing classical, contemporary, and world premiere roles on nearly every stage in that city, (and in more than one language).
I got good press. They called me ‘…a virtuoso…’1 and ‘…a powerhouse…’2, and when I finally left to move to Manhattan, as ‘…part of an artistic ‘brain-drain’…’3 which, at the time, included now Tony Award-winning director Kenny Leon.
I got to New York, found my footing, and started working: co-starring on multiple episodes of ‘Law & Order’ and the soaps (when they were in town), and making my Off-Broadway debut in the final production of Tony Randall’s National Actors Theatre, ‘Right You Are!’ by Luigi Pirandello. Directors and casting directors called me ‘…a rock star…’4 and ‘…the most persistent actor in New York.’5
Momentum was mine.
Then, chaos intervened…and, I took some time out, for my family.
Now, this business isn’t easy to break into once, let alone twice.
But, as they say: I’m persistent.
I headed back to my roots, worked on numerous projects with the city’s Middle Eastern company, Noor Theatre, developed new plays like NOURA and DEAD ARE MY PEOPLE, and burnished my classical chops by appearing downtown as Jason in MEDEA. I began picking up accolades for my performance on-screen in Anthony Haden Salerno’s festival favorite LAPSE, started doing more independent film, and in the spring of 2017, I made my Broadway debut in the Tony Award-winning OSLO, by JT Rogers, at Lincoln Center Theater.
These days, they’re calling me ‘…insightful, intelligent, instinctive…’6 and ‘…one hot f*ckin’ actor.’7
I’m on a roll, again.
