At IU, his credits include M. BUTTERFLY (Rene Gallimard) by David Henry Hwang, and three new play premieres: INTENTIONS by Abbey Fenbert, JAMES by Bruce Walsh, and AMERICAN ASTEROID by Mauricio Miranda.

WHO IS THEO?He spent the summer at Bristol Valley Theatre in GODSPELL, BLACK COMEDY and as a gullible policeman in search of zombies and leprechauns in the world premiere of David L. Kimple‘s hilarious new play, WHO IS THEO? He also hosted and performed in the annual cabaret, and read in two staged readings at part of the BVT New Works Initiative: Joe Norton’s JETTY and Bill Capossare’s DROWNED. It’s been a good year for new plays!

His credits range from a two-and-a-half year gig on the American Queen Steamboat on the Mississippi River, to the award-winning indie-soap EMPIRE, his own comedy pilot THIS JUST IN, and his Youtube show LIVE FROM THE DZONE. He’s played Juliet’s Nurse, George Seurat, the Cowardly Lion, Leo Bloom, Cornelius Hackl, Thénardier, Cosmo Brown, and Harry Witherspoon to name a few. He earned a BFA in Musical Theatre from SUNY Fredonia.

He is very slowly learning to play the ukulele and understand sarcasm. Very slowly.
