I was born in Jerusalem, Israel but grew up a Jersey boy. My acting career started at age 5 in the school play. I was cast as a bit part but ended up supplanting the lead of the play due to my enormously loud voice.
I attended New York University's Experimental Theater Wing for four years and after graduation appeared in numerous plays while honing my Stand-Up Comedy Act. My act eventually morphed into an Off Broadway One Man Show entitled...well, since the show was named after a Prince song it won't be mentioned here for fear of litigious acts by the Purple One.
I got my first break in Los Angeles mostly due to my then off the wall hairstyle which secured me a role on House. My next big break came due to a fender bender where the director of a film bumped into my car in a parking lot. I turned down the money and took the audition instead which netted me a role in the Sundance hit 'Expired' with Jason Patric.
Currently I'm working on writing my second feature film this year. The first, a cross between Blue is the Warmest Color and The Girl with Dragon Tattoo just got optioned in Norway.
I live in Laurel Canyon with the Love of my Life, the cutest doggie on the planet and seventy three tons of Loose Leaf tea.
