I asked my doctor why I kept singing

"What's New Pussycat?" in my head. He

said, "You have Tom Jones Syndrome".

When I asked if that was common, he

said, "It's not unusual."

Shot a stunt/acting role on Gotham. See me as the one and only Thug #2 on Season 2, Episode 18 entitled “Pinewood”. Don’t blink and you might see something interesting happen to me.

I also had the great pleasure of playing Christian in Resonance Ensemble’s  Cyrano de Bergerac

at Off-Broadway’s Theatre at St. Clement’s in NYC with an incredible, 8-actor ensemble cast. Gabriel Barre directed and starred as Cyrano.

I had quite a stretch of Million Dollar Quartet last year: 2 weeks in April as Carl Perkins in Vegas; 6/1-10/30, did 3 roles in 3 productions: June-July in Hilton Head, SC as Perkins; covered Perkins in Vegas for 3 weeks in August; Merry Go Round in Auburn, NY as Sam Phillips in Sept;  back to Vegas in Oct to play Johnny Cash for 2 weeks. That last Vegas run included a surprise performance as Sam Phillips, sans rehearsal, and were special as the show closed on December 4, the 60th anniversary of the actual event. I was an original cast member in January 2013, and was grateful to return regularly.

Played Carl Perkins in MDQ at Ivoryton Playhouse, Ivoryton, CT. It was a great production in a beautiful, historic area. I highly recommend it.
