I have performed at numerous renaissance faires around the country, first as a lane atmosphere performer, and then as a writer, director, manager, and one of the performers in a comedy sword act.

I have also been involved in various productions of Shakespeare, including Midsummer Night's Dream and Much Ado About Nothing.  As well, my regional theatre resume includes O'Reilly in 'The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940' and the Ghost of Christmas Present in 'A Christmas Carol.'

For 15 years, I lived and worked in Orlando, FL, at Universal Studios as both an actor, most recently in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and as a stage manager for Halloween Horror Nights, their premiere Halloween event.

Other theme park work includes seasonal holiday entertainment with Seaworld.

I never grow tired of finding a new challenge to test my performing limits, including time as an alligator wrestler at Gatorland, the original Orlando theme park.

As a re-enactor at Titanic: The Experience, I have lent my talents to bring to life various passengers, both rich and poor, and crew members from the ill-fated voyage.

As well, hungry tourists have found me at various dinner theaters, including Sleuths, (the now defunct) Arabian Nights, Medieval Times (in Dallas, TX and Baltimore, MD as well as Orlando), and lastly, at Pirates Dinner Adventure, where my inner child delighted in swinging from ropes and sword-fighting with some amazing and talented stunt performers.

Throughout it all, December always finds me in a red suit as Santa Claus.  As well as private bookings, I have ridden the float in the Macy's Holiday Parade, been waiting at the end of the line of Seaworld's Polar Express, and joined other beloved characters onstage at Nickelodeon Hotel.

As a writer, I have opened up my life in story-form for the world to see and hear and actively blog on various subjects, including commentary on politics and cultural sensitivities.

I have recently moved across the country, to Albuquerque, NM, to try my hand at film and TV.  I look forward to what the future will bring.
