I’m an Actor having had the privilege of learning from some of the greatest in the Chicago Theatre Community; I've worked with Chicago’s Goodman Theatre, Off Broadway in New York, the Pasadena Playhouse. I've toured nationally with an Academy Award winner, and worked in an American premiere with an Olivier Award-winning director.
