I came to acting later in life, after having been a high school English teacher, perpetual graduate student (philosophy, photography, creative writing), and small town newspaper reporter. In theater, I’ve played roles such as Richard Nixon, King Henry IV, Malvolio, James Tyrone, Jr., Holofernes, Dr. Caius, Brabantio, and other odd characters at theaters such as The American Shakespeare Center, The Springer Opera House, The Arden Theatre Co., Walnut Street Theatre, The Alliance for New Music-theatre (where I’m a company member,) Mt. Hood Repertory Theatre, Northwest Classical Theatre, and others.
I can also be seen in films, tv, commercials, industrials, and print.
I earned my MFA at the U. of Houston and continue to study on camera acting with Vance Barber. When not acting, I can be found scuba diving, motorcycling, bicycling, and writing. I split my time between DC and NYC.

Legends & Lies
Television (Biography) Actor It is often said that winners write prevailing histories. Bias and inaccuracies of memory lead to legends supporting the views of the winners. In Legends and Lies-The Patriots, the authors differentiate the facts of events from contemporary popular opinions which have survived to the present day. The character studies are insightful and do much to explain the motivations of citizens to become Patriots opposing the British. The dramatization makes the series come alive for adults and children.

Film (Drama) Actor A famous author encourages his young writing students to live and write on the edge, leading to a blurring of the boundaries between fact, fiction and sanity. Celebrated author Ezra Rosen stages a comeback after a long respite by teaching what is supposed to be an on-line writing workshop. Instead he hosts the classes at his home seeking to revitalize himself and his storytelling by seducing his young students into a cult of writing and living dangerously. Rosen wastes no time preying upon the students' vulnerabilities via his unorthodox, dogmatic approach to teaching writing.
