"a shapeshifter of an actor" - Cleveland Plain Dealer

Where've I Been?

There's been a lack of illustration-related posts recently, and for good reason!

Open Mind Firmament ended its acclaimed run at Cleveland Public Theatre. Being a part of that show was a great experience!

In early June, I completed a 10-day intensive workshop on Alba Emoting, taught by Roxane Rix, the senior teacher in the United States. It was a fascinating 10 days which resulted in new dimensions in my acting and many positive personal changes. I'm so grateful to have been introduced to this fascinating technique and look forward to continuing my study of it.

Currently, I'm in a three-week directing workshop taught by Seth Gordon, former Associate Artistic Director of The Cleveland Play House, and current Associate Artistic Director of The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis. I'll be directing a scene from Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie, my favorite play. I will play Tom one day! That's my dream role. At the conclusion of this class, I will be continuing my training with my acting teacher, Elizabeth Ann Townsend. More Michael Chekhov is a good thing.

Last weekend, I participated in a photoshoot with photographer Simon Peng and creator Tony Thai for The Intimacy Project, and am now working with the two of them on making that great project grow.

On June 9th, I was the Dish of the Day on Deep Dish and ended up being the favorite Dish of that week, winning 30% of the votes in the weekly poll.

Illustration and design-wise, I completed the home page illustration for 16thand8th.com; a website for a television pilot. I'm now working with Jayel Aheram to design the logo for his upcoming website, The Valleyist.

It's great to be busy and I'm looking forward to upcoming auditions! Be sure to check out the newly updated pages on this site: Acting, which includes video, and Photo Galleries.
