What is your current project? Most Likely To
Where are you performing it and why is it the right fit for your piece?
New York New Works Theatre Festival. This festival looks to give aspiring writers and performers a chance to be recognized by many people including an extraordinary panel of broadway producers, writers, and people of the industry who are looking to give back. It’s a great place to showcase my work since I have recently moved back to NY to kick my theater career into high gear.
What’s next for you?
The beauty and the scary things about what’s next is that it is unknown. I am currently wrapping up narration on the newest James Patterson “Alex Cross” audiobook titled Cross The Line. I hope to do more stage, TV and voice work in the near future, here in NY. I am also thirsty to travel overseas with my work.
Who is your biggest inspiration right at this moment and why?
Honestly I think my biggest inspiration right now are the many friends and colleagues I have that are still in this business. Some of them have seen some very major successes recently from Tony awards to series regular roles on TV. Others, like myself, have seen smaller victories but, no matter what, they don’t give up, because this difficult calling of being an artist is not to be taken lightly. I am inspired by the people around me that put their head down, clench their fists, and trudge forward, despite the punches and setbacks we receive.
