me.

Hi! I'm an actor with strong roots in the theatre, but I'm always excited to explore new mediums. I love working on everything from the classics to contemporary pieces, though there is a soft spot in my heart for new works and play development. I am a native Angelino, a foodie, a dog-loving family guy, and among many other things, a wine tasting junkie (Santa Ynez Valley stalker). And for the record: I am a super proud supporter of L.A's 99 Seat Theatre Community.

 

I have been a serious student of the acting craft for most of my life, and that endeavour has afforded me the opportunity to perform in theatres throughout the United States, as well as parts of Mexico and Canada.

 

In Los Angeles, I have had the honor of performing at, and working with L.A. Theatre Works, Kirk Douglas Theatre, REDCAT, Theatre @ Boston Court, The Actors' Gang, The Geffen Playhouse, Bootleg Theatre, The Company of Angels, The Bilingual Foundation of the Arts, East West Players, Highways Performance Space, Grand Performances at Cal Plaza, Casa 0101, The Getty Villa, The Getty Center, Skirball Cutural Center, Pantages Theater, Universal Studios Hollywood (various shows), and South Coast Rep's studio series. In addition, I have proudly been a long time member of Critical Mass Performance Group, and Rosanna Gamson/Worldwide. I've toured internationally with Rosanna Gamson/Worldwide. Both latter companies collaboratively and imaginatively devise new and original theatre and/or dance/theatre works to much critical acclaim.

 

I also have a strong list of Commercial work as well. 

 

As an arts educator and teacher, I have taught theatre/movement from elementary school to college conservatory courses. In Los Angeles (and surrounding areas) some of the non-profit arts organizations I have worked with include LACER Afterschool Programs, Will and Co, Company of Angels and artworxLA (formerly The HeArt Project). As a recipient of multiple grants from the Department of Cultural Affairs and the California Arts Council, I have, in collaboration with high school and middle school youth, adapted classic stories, and devised original and non-linear movement-theatre pieces that are performed by the students themselves. 

 

And I'm fluent in Spanish, of course.
