I was fortunate to be accepted to the Actors Studio Drama School straight out of college and so made the move to New York. There I studied under Elizabeth Kemp, Jacqueline Knapp & Susan Aston.
After graduating, I spent some years with THE UME GROUP studying butoh and commedia dell arte.
During this time I fell in love and married my wife, Karen. We have TWO beautiful boys, Thomas and Theodore.
Outside of acting, I spend time writing short stories and cooking.
I did the 'get out of this town' thing at 18. As I left I made sure to stop at my best friend's pizza place before the drive from Houston to Denton. I attended the University of North Texas to earn a BA in Theatre. I studied acting there under Bob Hess & Marjorie Hayes. The moment I discovered my love of performing was at age 14 as Motel in my middle school production of Fiddler on the Roof. While in college, my work culminated in a production of GODSPELL directed by Bob that was a life changing experience for me. I knew I had to go to New York City.
