Actor and Teacher
(and apparently a Belgian Shepherd or
maybe a Chesapeake Bay Retriever*)

If I could choose a symbol for
my life and career
it would be a circle.

I came to New York City to
study theater and acting at the
renowned Circle In The Square
Theatre Professional Workshop,
50th Street and Broadway.  
Circle's two-year program
launched me into acting where I
have been seen on all levels,
off-off Broadway,
off-Broadway and on
Broadway, as well as regionally.

In 1996, I returned as a
teaching artist to Circle In The
Square, where I am currently
on faculty. I joined the
permanent faculty in 2002.
What I have found is that my
acting informs my teaching and
my teaching informs my acting.

I have come full circle.

In recent years I have
expanded my teaching into the
Public Speaking arena helping
actors and non-actors alike.
You'll find more about my very
personal Public Speaking
Coaching by clicking on its tab in
the upper left column.

I hope in these pages you will
come to know me as the actor
you should hire for stage or film.
I hope you will come to know
me as the teacher and coach
you need for your next audition,
scene or role. Or come to know
me as the coach you need for
your next business or Public
Speaking presentation.

*for some reason when I first played this
game, I found out I am, in my heart of
hearts, a Belgian Shepherd (left). But a
recent review of the facts reveals that I
am a Chesapeake Bay Retriever (right).
