My experience in live theatre has been a major springboard for my filmmaking passions. As an actor, I gained a deeper understanding of what it means to direct, and I learned to be part of an ensemble - part of a team working towards a single goal. I realize the importance of perseverance through moments of fear in the spotlight.
Eurydice, by Sarah Ruhl (2015)
For the first time, I felt completely connected to an audience—an elegant vulnerability.
“Orpheus said the mind is like a slide ruler. It can fit around anything. Words can mean everything. Show me your body, he said. It only means one thing.”
The American Clock, by Arthur Miller (2015)
My first leading role. I played a character who aged throughout the play--a thoroughly enjoyable acting challenge. A huge leap forward in my understanding of taking direction as well as leading an ensemble.
Cinderella, by Rogers and Hammerstein. (2017)
Featured Ballroom Dancer / Knight
My most recent show, and my most opulent. Massive baroque costumes, technical choreography, and a thrilling exploration of physicality.
Footloose, by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie (2016)
My first major role in a musical. As a supporting character, I had to sing without the cover of a full ensemble. I’m not a perfect singer, but I am an actor who can sing. Playing Travis was a lesson in character, commitment, and enthusiasm compensating for technical skill.
The Dining Room, by A.R. Gurney
