A highly-experienced classically-trained actor, I'm now bringing the collaborative and imaginative skill set of a performing artist to the field of software development. Driven by innate curiosity, a knack for puzzle-solving, and a passion for discovery, I engage in a broad range of endeavors, committed to a harmony of logic and intuition, play and purpose, improvisation and orchestration, talent and training.

With a BFA from The Juilliard School Drama Division, I have been a member of Actors' Equity Assn. since 1995, and of SAG/AFTRA since 2001. I was awarded the Presidential Scholar in the Arts medal, and have performed on television and in plays, regionally, internationally, and Off- and on Broadway, including the Tony® award-winning revivals of CABARET and Tom Stoppard's THE REAL THING.
Behind the scenes, I directed the first NYC revival of John Logan's NEVER THE SINNER, served as dialect coach for Convergent Theatre Co.'s THE CRIPPLE OF INISHMAAN and MAJOR BARBARA, and worked as a scenic carpenter for several Off-Broadway theaters. I've also narrated audiobooks for Audible and Recorded Books, and done on-camera and voice-over commercials. I'm particularly proud of my Toon Blast ad, where I played the Puppeteer of Ryan Reynolds's fake arms.
As a musician, I played venues from CBGB to Joe's Pub to Jazz at Lincoln Center. Once, with a few castmates from CABARET, I even sang the US and Canadian national anthems at a Mets game.
I bring my creativity to bear in many other ways, too, whether collaboratively or DIY. Ask me about my space-efficient furniture design and construction, or the time I crafted 12 unique light-up wands for a Harry Potter themed birthday party!
