Aside from computer games he also has a long and ongoing career in theatre, film and television. His film appearances include In Your Eyes, written and produced by Joss Whedon; Convention, directed by Ryan Fleck & Anna Boden; the trippy horror movies The Shells, and Pumpkin Hell, both directed by Max Finneran; Sonnet 48 for The Sonnet Project; and Catherine Eaton’s soon to be released Liv. On television he’s been seen in Will & Grace; Mad About You; Newsradio; Doogie Howser, MD; and played a number of doctors and detectives on various Soap Operas.

His many years of experience in the theatre include appearing on Broadway in King Lear with Christopher Plummer; touring the United States in The Merchant Of Venice with F. Murray Abraham; multiple productions Off-Broadway for companies such as MCC and Primary Stages; and a long list of appearances in regional theatre productions around the US. He also directs for the theatre, most recently helming the Off-Broadway world premiere production of Tim Ruddy’s award winning The International at Playwright’s Horizons; and the world premiere of Eyes Shut, Door Open for the Wax Wings company in Boston. He’s an associate artist with the Origin Theatre Company, a member of the NyLon Fusion Collective, and a longtime volunteer with The 52nd St. Project, a non-profit theatre company that puts professional theatre artists together with inner city children to create original theatre, film and art.

Born and raised in Boston, he graduated with a BA from Boston University and earned his MFA in Acting from the University of California, San Diego’s Professional Theatre Training Program.
