I have been fortunate enough to make my living as an actor, producer, writer and director for over twenty years, mostly in the theatre, and mostly in New York City. I___ЕЅ█А_К__Ѕ█А_К____Л______ынЅ█А_К____Л____Ѕ█А_К__ve performed on Broadway and off, on international operatic and concert stages, with a focus and specialization in the creation of new work. I have had the honor to work, travel, and live in over 40 countries on four continents.

I was born in Tokyo, Japan to US Air Force parents, grew up in West Germany and Northern California. I am a Frank and Eva Buck Scholar, a graduate of the Manhattan School of Music (Bachelor in Music), received a certificate from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in Acting, and received a Master___ЕЅ█А_К__Ѕ█А_К____Л______ынЅ█А_К____Л____Ѕ█А_К__s degree from the NYU-Tisch Graduate Musical Theater Writing program.

With my co-writer Charles Vincent Burwell, we are developing the new musical "Bottle Shock", based on the 2008 movie of the same name, at Ars Nova.
