This is my own extremely small corner of the Internet where you can find imagery, news, and video associated with my life as an actor and all-around creative person. Thank you for coming!
My newest short film, VITAL INSTRUMENTS, had a super-successful premiere at the Grindhouse Nights Film Festival this past October, and is now playing at multiple film festivals nationwide, racking up well-deserved attention and awards!
This action-horror short follows a trio of robbers as they hunker down in an isolated safe house following a heist gone wrong, only to discover that their "safe house" is sheltering a terrifying, implacable force of evil.
We shot it back in the Fall of 2021, and I want to give huge credit to the creative team behind the film, Lee Schatzman and director Greg Kase, not only for putting this freaky project together and being such talented-awesome people, but for heroically battling through a COVID shutdown, multiple night shoots, and the mires of post-production to bring this movie across the finish line.
In fact, you can meet me at its NYC premiere, November 12th at Cinema Village as part of the New York Short Film Festival! You can buy tickets HERE (we are in Block #8!).
Shortly after wrapping up ROMEO AND JULIET, I got to shoot a supporting role for Season 5 of The History Channel's hit show THE FOOD THAT BUILT AMERICA!
Ironically, my scene took place in Switzerland, but New Jersey clearly can double convincingly for a Swiss factory, right?
The professionalism, talent, and drive of everyone on set was an inspiration, and everything ran like clockwork, like...well, a Swiss watch.
Adding to the joy of the day, I got to run into William Weinig, whom I've made a couple of short films with over the years! It's a true gift to see that the friends and connections I make along the way recur and reappear when I least expect it. :-)
More info shall come about when my episode of THE FOOD THAT BUILT AMERICA will air, but I'm expecting probably Spring of 2024.
This October, we closed out our 16-performance run of ROMEO AND JULIET at The Curtain in Jersey City.
This was an amazing adventure and such a spectacular opportunity to be part of the ensemble for this show, led by director Sean Hagerty. From my casting back in July until now, it's been a wonderful ride with truly talented and skilled people, both onstage and off.
Playing the Captain of the Guard (the Prince in many other adaptations) as well as the Apothecary allowed me to explore multiple roles and vastly different dramatic situations onstage. I am truly grateful to have been given the opportunity to perform Shakespeare with such a gifted and insightful group of professional actors and stage technicians.
I hope to be lucky enough to work with them again in the future!
I'm so pleased to announce that Lindsey Catherine has joined the team at my agency, VIE Model and Talent Agency, and will be my primary on-camera rep going forward!
While I was very sad to say goodbye to Robin Hellmann, my wonderful previous agent who is now moving on to new adventures and challenges, Lindsey has deeply impressed me in a very short amount of time with her focus, good cheer, and tremendous ability to generate auditions!
I can't wait to see what we can achieve together once the strike is over. I'm super blessed to be working with the likes of Lindsey as well as VIE's owner and head honcho, Will Ball!
I've just been cast in this wicked and sharp independent horror short film, EIGHT LEGS, which will shoot in upstate New York next month!
Written and directed by rising young filmmaker Cate Christiansen, this film follows a teenage boy living a tense and cold household, ruled by his imposing father (which would be me). In the midst of such unremitting tension, the boy's repressed sexuality seeks unsettling expression.
I'm honored to be joining Cate and her team, and I'm super excited for our shoot in December!
I'm honored to announce that Leah S. Abrams of the creative incubator Undiscovered Works has invited me to join the developmental reading of a new full-length comedy, TASTELESS!
This four-actor play centers around an insular restaurant critic who finds himself emotionally adrift after his closest friend and longtime dining companion asks to take a break so she can explore having dinner with...anyone else. Our protagonist is soon juggling this fractured friendship, a new protegee, her maybe/maybe-not birth father (that would be me), and this strange new pandemic that is closing down restaurants and destroying taste buds...
This developmental reading will take place on Zoom on December 4th at 8 pm.
More info should be coming to this page soon!
