Getting To Know You
I was born and raised in Allentown, Pennsylvania, about 2 hours Southwest of the Big Apple. As a child I visited NYC a couple of times and always felt a sense of belonging. I always had an interest in acting, but I didn't attempt to pursue a career in the field because I was focused elsewhere.
That focus was Kindergarten. As a Kindergarten teacher I was always teaching my students to pursue their dreams. Inspiring them with books like "Oh the Places You Will Go" by Dr. Seuss. It was during this period in my life that I truly began to ask myself some transformative questions, such as; Is this going to be the rest of my life? What would happen if...? Where could I go?
Teaching brought me many joys and I have a true passion for it. I especially loved being a facilitator of learning for children, but I needed to explore the world. I desired an adventure. I refused to be the guy filled with "What If's". So, I began to pursue an adventure. That adventure led me to acting and to a life in the city that never sleeps.
My adventure continues today and I can honestly say it has been one magnificent journey, thus far. I've been blessed with many wonderful opportunities. Each day brings a new promise, a new possibility. The adventure of life keeps calling and I continue to answer.
