I was born and raised in Dedham, MA. Just outside of Boston. I have always been an artist. My imagination transfers into everything I do. All through school I was the kid always going on grand adventures that I found in the "jungle" up the street or "caves and tunnels" in and around my house.
In my teens I transferred a lot of my imagination onto paper. I would draw anything and everything I could. My attention was always feeding into the artistic and creative aspect of my life. My school work reflected this. In any subject where any sort of creativity and imagination were applied, I excelled in (i.e. chemistry, electronics, art, english, and even one logical subject which in itself is an art - math). I eventually went to a vocational school where I took on Advertising Art. I expanded my medium from paper and pencil, charcoal, pastel, etc. to photo and computer.
A few years passed and all the time I was here I still searched for the artistic side of anything I did, and believe me, some of the things I did I had to search really really hard. At one point I started drawing again. Only my canvas was skin. It was a great experience but there was still something missing. I felt caged. I needed to find something to free myself, and I did. It was right there in front of me.
I pulled together my courage once again. I went out to seek information about acting. I found it. I opened a door to my soul that was on a whole new extraordinary level of artistic expression, a whole new level of spiritual awakening, a new adventure of self discovery. It is the ultimate adventure. The ultimate drum. I am experiencing something that completely blows my mind and body on a daily basis. To be courageous enough to expose pieces of my soul to anyone around that I wouldn't normally allow myself to be vulnerable in front of is a gift and to have the audience experience something in themselves whether it be love, hate, laughter, tears, is a gift not only to me, but to the audience experiencing the performance. Which makes the reward that much better. Being able to own and expose all of the archetypes that are in me, that are in everyone, still amazes me to this day, and I'm sure it always will. It is a gift that I am forever grateful to have. This is my calling. The path of my heart that I have followed faithfully my whole life has lead me to this realization. That I am an actor, a storyteller.
