I’m a storyteller, artist and design-driven creative. I've worked on stage, on screen, on paper, under stress and behind the camera. As an actor, I'm currently working on two new web series titled Cantabridgia, and The Halls. The types of characters I love to play: charming college student/boy next door, leading man or best friend, with a confident, witty, outgoing personality yet approachable, creative and somewhat sensitive side—who may or may not be hiding a killer secret or an even darker past.
When I'm not acting, I design the key art and marketing materials for theatrical productions. Whether it's a comedy classic from 1753 or a reflective and poignant tribute to the Boston Marathon, I use imagery, typography and design elements to produce work that fosters an emotional connection with prospective audiences. Long story short, I put people in seats.
No matter the role, I love this industry for the people I get to meet, the creative collaboration, and the stories we get to share.
