Recently returned from another fabulous summer of Shakespeare and fellowship with The Colorado Shakespeare Festival in Boulder.  CSF is America's second oldest Shakespeare Festival and a stunning and glorious place to work and thrive.  During the past two summers I've had the great honor of playing Petruchio, Brutus, Boyet, Cyrano De Bergerac and Edward III.  It's been my distinct pleasure to work with the likes of Christopher Duval, Anthony Powell, Brendon Fox and Kevin Rich along with Tim Orr and Wendy Franz the Artistic Genius behind the success of CSF.  

Currently I'm helping choreograph the violence of The Beauty Queen of Leenane for The Jewel Theatre Company of Santa Cruz, California.
