I've been acting since I was a child and have performed in numerous plays and musicals in regional theaters, tours, and NYC. I worked for years doing children's theater tours and received my equity card from the Theater for Young Audiences tour of "Story Salad" which presented well known children's books on stage.
My first off-off Broadway gig was playing an Italian (yes, we know...I look nothing like that) in a small play in the early 90s. I also appeared numerous times on Saturday Night Live (which led to my AFTRA card), the television show Tattingers, and then toured the country in both The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. I also played Striker the Mascot for the '94 World Cup when the character was introduced to the press in '92. In 2023, I returned to working in front of the camera with several roles in short films, commercial/UGC acting, and background TV work on shows like Succession, HBO Docs, and Ryan Murphy's American Sports Story.
