About

My experience as an actor runs the gamut. I have voiced numerous local and national commercials and campaigns. I’ve performed on stage in everything from experimental Shakespeare in (very) high heels, to a world premiere play at Chicago’s Steppenwolf opposite Tracy Letts, in which I had the dubious privilege of dunking that Pulitzer Prize winner’s head in a bucket of cold water eight times a week. I have appeared on stage at some of the best regional theaters in the country.

 

Commercially, I’ve performed everything from major voice-of campaigns, to improv-based “man on the street”, to pharma fair balance. I am proud of my work on Boardwalk Empire (HBO), Law & Order SVU (NBC), Alpha House (Amazon Studios) and the Emmy-nominated Muhammed Ali’s Greatest Fight (HBO) among others. In addition to earning a BFA from Northern Illinois University and a certificate from the Moscow Art Theater, I’ve trained in Improv at UCB and elsewhere.

 

Whatever the project, I relish every opportunity to do what I love: tell stories. Resume.
