Executive Summary

With over 30 years experience on the Broadway stage and beyond, both in the spotlight and behind the scenes, I’ve been blessed to work with the best in the business.

From my start at THE LOST COLONY through my superhero days as AUTOMAN, my Broadway debut as one of THE THREE MUSKETEERS, my fairy tale years as both Princes and the Wolf in INTO THE WOODS, my dark brooding years as the Doctor and the Monster in JEKYLL & HYDE and the dark Inspector Javert in LES MISERABLES to my international years as the enchanted Beast in Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST I continue to share the Magic of Theatre with audiences around the world.

For 4 years I lived on a train serving as Ringmaster of THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH - THE RINGLING BROS. AND BARNUM & BAILEY CIRCUS helping to move, setup and pack out that amazing production.

I currently produce and perform LIVING THE DREAM and CLASSIC in which I present 'the Broadway Musical Adventure of my Lifetime' through story and song.

I also teach a variety of Masterclasses including in depth studies of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, LES MISERABLES, JEKYLL & HYDE and INTO THE WOODS, working with student actors in exploration of these classic works and more.

Objective

To bring optimism to all of my endeavors. To entertain, to educate, to learn, to share and to inspire.
