We've Got Questions!
1) What are you working on right now?
Gearing up for the reading of my new play, FIRE ON BABYLON. My new film, HOW WE BUILT THE BOMB airs on The Discovery Channel next month.
2) What has been your professional biggest accomplishment so far?
Hard to pick just one...I have a lot of favorites! I've been fortunate to do some really wonderful film projects, including HOW WE BUILT THE BOMB as well as some wonderful classical theater pieces (Romeo & Juliet, CYMBELINE). As a writer, my adaptation of THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY was produced by Sonnet Repertory Theatre this past summer.
3) Share your funniest or worst audition moment
Oh boy. I once auditioned for a play where I walked in and the casting people told me that I was too ugly to be in the piece. That was rough.
4) What's your dream role?
I've gotten to play most of them. Romeo, Edmund Tyrone, Tom in THE GLASS MENAGERIE...I haven't had a go with Hamlet yet, which I'm chomping at the bit to do.
5) If you weren't a performer, what would you be?
I would devote my life to writing full time.
6) Where do you see yourself in 5, 10 years?
Still pounding the pavement. Still acting. Still writing. Still hungry.
7) Where can people find you online?
