Undoubtedly this bio is out of date. I’ll get to it.
I’m an actor and director based in Chicago.
For a taste of how I come off cinematically, I play an art teacher with a romantic secret and a penchant for mentorship in Joselito Seldera’s 35mm short film Unsettled, which was accepted into the LA Short Fest and can now be viewed in its entirety here.
If you have access to the right streaming service you can also see my speaking appearances on Chicago Fire (S1E9 “It Ain’t Easy”) and Chicago PD (S2E13 “A Little Devil Complex”).
I co-starred in a movie with Nick Offerman almost two decades ago that won a prize at Sundance. Long story.
Recent theatre includes: The Royale (St. Louis Rep), 1984 and No Place Like Home (Steppenwolf), Anne Frank, Arcadia and Hedda Gabler (Writers Theatre) The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs (16th Street), Henry VIII, Amadeus and King Lear (Chicago Shakespeare), The Humans, Speed-the-Plow and Doubt (ATC), Sleuth and The Fox on the Fairway (Theater at the Center), Ten Chimneys and Mauritius (Northlight), Invisible Man and Travesties (Court Theatre), Becky Shaw, The Mandrake, The Mutilated and Evening at the Talk House (A Red Orchid), Dollhouse and Lobby Hero (Goodman), Thom Pain (based on nothing), Spin and Santaland Diaries (Theater Wit), Around the World in 80 Days (Lookingglass/Kansas City Rep), and Fanny Brice (Asolo in Sarasota, FL and Maltz in Jupiter, FL).
I’ve also directed several plays, including A Very Merry Scientology Pageant and The Earl (both at A Red Orchid).
Film credits include Public Enemies, The Express, Repetition, Road to Perdition, Treasure Island, and Payback. Here’s the IMDb page. My commercial work includes spots for AT&T and Walmart, among others, as well as various voiceovers.
I’ve been on the cover of Time Out Chicago, covered in meat (pre-Lady Gaga).
I am an ensemble member of A Red Orchid Theatre.
