I have enjoyed acting since my first role as Sky Masterson in my high school's production of Guys and Dolls. After a long hiatus, I've played roles in local productions, mostly with Trumansburg's Encore Players Community Theatre.

    Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre

    I've enjoyed several roles with Crime Solvers. It's really fun to form a story around the character I'm playing, interacting with guests.

    Artifice (Payne Showers)

    Artifice is a hilarious romp packed with intrigue, relationships, near disaster, and, well, art.

    Are You Now or Have You Ever Been (Lionel Stander)

    Out of the Blue (Improv)

    I loved practicing and performing improvisation with this group, whether it be spoken, sung or danced.

    The Music Man (Mayor Shinn)

    Mayor Shinn provided quite a bit of comic relief during this performance. His bluster and bombastic lines made him a pleasure to play!

    Spoon River (Various Characters)

    Spoon River was satisfying on so many levels. I enjoyed getting to know my monologues, and then knowing the nuances of speech that could change their intonation in a heartbeat.

    Oliver! (Bill Sykes)

    Bill Sykes stretched my vocal talents, requiring a rough-around-the-edges, intimidating performance.

    Guys and Dolls (Sky Masterson)

    I began to come out of my shell as a junior and senior in high school. I played the role of Sky Masterson.
