About

SecondStory Repertory's CHESS
Through the many twists and turns of my life, one thing has always remained true:  I love the theatre.

My love has evolved from a beacon of attention, a way to meet girls, an outlet for my creativity, to a form of storytelling that financially supports me, and fulfills my soul.

I have performed in the theatre for 20-plus years, while performing professionally for the past 10. While I specialize in Musical Theatre, I have also performed in Shakespeare, pantomime, dance and vocal recitals, concerts, cabarets, radio dramas, staged readings, and the occasional improv show.

A few years ago, I realized it wasn’t just theatre, but telling stories: the ones you invest in, connect with. Stories that allow you to discover something new about the world, and about yourself. It’s my currency, my career, my passion. Whether your story is a book, a video game, a product, a production, or even a song, I’d relish the opportunity to help share your story.
