About Me

I am a writer, musician, actor, ukulele evangelist, and coffee achiever.

My writing ranges from promotional video scripts and original theatre and musical pieces to numerous web and print articles on theatre, music, finance, Star Trek, and more.

A favorite short story I’ve written, In Memory Yet Green, is part of an anthology titled My First Time.

I am a proud member of the American Theatre Critics Association, and you can read some of my current and archived theatre reviews here.

I’ve acted professionally in many plays (and two films and a couple of commercials), taught drama at a public elementary school, played saxophone in a two-man band, co-founded two theatre troupes, worked at financial institutions, built custom furniture, worked at film and theatre festivals, and washed windows at Julie Andrews’ house.

I’ve also worked as a professional actor, musician, and woodworker.

I have a beautiful wife and two cute children.

Let’s stay in touch. I’m on Twitter more than I ought to be, and you can follow me there or subscribe to my newsletter.
