Just a little bit about me: I am a Los Angeles based Film, TV and Stage Actor. Born and raised in Wilton, Connecticut just outside of New York City. I found a love of stage when I saw my first Off-Broadway play, "A Mid Summer Night's Dream" and my first musical, "Miss Saigon" (which I got to see opening week). These two shows and my 6th grade English teacher inspired me to perform in countless plays and musicals throughout my childhood. The films that inspired me in my youth were, "ET", "Goonies", "Star Wars", "Planet of the Apes", "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly", Fellini's "81/2", "2001: A Space Odyssey", among countess others...
Being first generation American, born from Italian parents, my childhood was filled with art, music, travel, and especially... food... and I still have a passion for all these things in my life today. My love of acting is based in the idea that we are empathetic story tellers who get to collaborate with fellow actors, directors, writers, and producers. Together we expose audiences to something they might not otherwise get a chance to experience, understand, or feel.
When it comes to technique and craft, I believe in the "taking what works best for you from each school of training" method. Take different classes and try new things, always... That's what I do. I am honored and proud to be a member of this noble profession called Acting.
