I live in a yellow house in the foothills of Southern Oregon.  Assuming you’re here for professional reasons, I’ll steer my focus from my love of 19th Century French painting and 21st Century Norwegian recycling practices and towards my craft.  As an writer, my work has been performed on stages in New York, Louisiana, Texas, Connecticut, Montana, Oregon, and Washington; filmed for the screen, and published by Yale Palimpsest, Jefferson Journal, Smith & Kraus, and American Dog Books. 

As an actor, I have collaborated on a whole buncha work in a whole buncha places including, some favorites, New York, New Orleans, Austin, Altoona, Missoula, Budapest, Boston, Bonn, Paris, and an incredible little theater in Tblisi, Republic of Georgia. Last year I received the Best Actor Award at the London, Madrid, and Milan International Film Festivals for the short film Garden District; and this year I am appearing in Duplass Brothers’ The Long Long Night which debuts at Tribeca in June (details HERE).

I am also the founder of Finding Our Tales, national storytelling workshops that embolden youth (and people who have been young for a long time) to share their voices through theatre. I’ve had the privilege of working with students at CUNY, Southern Rep’s Theatre Apprentice Program, Yale’s Dwight/Edgewood Project, NOCCA, Seasons Bereavement Programs, The Siskiyou School, Creative Connections, Beargrass Writer’s Retreat, Camp Mak-a-Dream, and, currently, Southern Oregon University.

My commitment is to build and support work that contributes to kindness. 

Thank you for visiting.
