His passion for the arts has taken him around the globe performing in the UK, Germany, Amsterdam, Switzerland, Japan and the US. He began his career with the German production of Starlight Express while still a junior year at NYU. Being let go during rehearsals for his inability to grasp the skating was his first lesson into the rigors of “The Biz” “I still remember how hard it was to skate down the hall to hear the news…literally!” After graduation he began performing in high level productions such as the European tour of West Side Story, Buddy Holly(Germany), and eventually landing a swing position in the original Dutch production of Miss Saigon. “I felt so privileged to be one of three Americans in the cast. Meeting Schonberg, Boublil, and Cameron Macintosh was amazing but singing in Dutch was no joke!”
After returning to NY, he continued to work in regional theater eventually landing a summer tour of of Joseph…Dreamcoat in the featured role of Judah starring the voice of the little mermaid, Jodi Benson and the Osmonds before booking the Tony Award winning production, “Chicago.” After a two year stint ,he was offered the iconic role of “Old Bojangles”at the approval and supervision of Ms. Ann Reinking in the European production of FOSSE.
Stints on tour with “Joseph” followed with stars such as Jon Secada and Patrick Cassidy interspersed with roles at prominent theaters such as Papermill Playhouse, Casa Manana, North Carolina Theater, Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera, The Kennedy Center, and Dallas Summer Musicals. A favorite regional theater moment was performing with the legendary Jennifer Holliday in Dreamgirls at the Fox Theater in Atlanta who later asked him to perform in her benefit concert in NYC at Towne Hall.
Fans may know him from co-star and guest star appearances on Boardwalk Empire, The Knick, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, I Am Homicide, and Z The Beginning of Everything as well as roles in the feature films The Eyes with Nick Turturro and Vincent Pastore, and An Act of Terror with Olivia Washington and Tonya Pinkins.
