How did you hear you’d booked your first Broadway show? Was on a two day shoot here in the city of an industrial film for IBM and got a call from the composer (Doug Katseros) to tell me I was getting an offer. It was one of the great life/career moments ever!!

What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you? Everything! I love it. Love being on stage more than anything. Love the community of it. Love the family that is created in a cast.
What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? Not to drop names, but a lunch with Joel Grey and a conversation that we had. Lost 8 lbs since!

Tell us a secret. Inside I’m 6'3". Seriously: If I wasn’t an actor I think I would want to be a chef, even though I don’t even cook all that much. (that’s not a very deep secret - I know!)
