Riding high on my co-star role in Bull makes me feel feisty!
That’s my type…a little devilish, questing for authority, at times playful and usually eager to take on a challenge. Tough, smart and well-educated characters come easily to me.
I tend to be cast as politicians, high-level CEOs, prominent Big City Psychiatrists, shrewd detectives, and suburban housewives. Some of these characters have a somewhat mild temperament, but others definitely do not. Regardless, the characters I play, in spite of their flaws or their good intentions, will evoke an audience’s empathy.
With a strong background that dates back to my training with Bill Hickey at HB Studios, I have continued to hone my craft with Alice Spivak, Anthony Grasso, UCB, and currently with Tim Phillips. I’ve booked dozens of projects including award-winning indie films, web series, commercials, voiceovers, and principal roles on cable TV.
My experience as Drama Desk President and on-air theater reporter (Cablevision12 and The Broadway Channel) inspired my vision to become a working actor. In addition, interviewing playwrights and actors for The Financial Times and The New York Daily News set me on the road to this new adventure.
While warmth and compassionate are personal characters that naturally emanate in my work, I’m never shy of immersing myself in characters whose moral compass may not be our own. Speaking through myriad masks requires an art of reflection and that is what excites me about being an actor.
Let’s go make art!
