WHITE RABBIT, RED RABBIT

August 13, 2021

The cat (or should I say rabbit?) is out of the bag! Announcing my first show back after a two-year (part intentional, part not) hiatus from performing. The play is WHITE RABBIT, RED RABBIT.

Come to the Alleyway Theatre on Saturday, September 11 where I will be performing this play for ONE NIGHT ONLY, after which I can never do it again. Why, you ask? Because, for this play, the actor is handed the script in a sealed envelope on the stage in front of the audience, HAVING NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE.

PODCAST APPEARANCE

February 24, 2021

Listen to this fun conversation I had with my former teacher and boss, the famous Los Angeles acting teacher, Margie Haber, on the latest episode of her podcast, "Slice of Life." In it, we dive into theatre vs. screen acting, social justice, advice for anyone pursuing acting, as well as a bit of my own personal journey as an actor and teacher.

Change

THOUGHT OF THE DAY

December 11, 2020

I believe anyone that wants to be an actor should strive to have a healthy relationship to Change. Being able to navigate Change in your career, in class, in the rehearsal room, on stage, on set, and in life means that you never give up your power just because the unexpected pops up. These surprises (both good and bad) are gifts. They remind us to tap into our own humanity and let our imperfections dance.

  

 

"There is a vitality, a life-force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique.

No artist is pleased.


There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than others."

Martha Graham to Agnes de Mille
