Acting Resume

Like many theatre artists, acting was how I first became interested in theatre. Although most of my theatrical work is behind the directing table or with a pen in my hand, I still enjoy performing. In recent years I have rekindled my love of acting, appearing on stages as small as the front seat of my car (Dashboard Dramas in Rochester Fringe Festival) and as large as a 1,400 seat opera house (Dear Elizabeth at the Smith Opera House in Geneva, NY).
