A Shakespearean actor living in Chicago, I have appeared onstage at the Goodman Theatre, the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, CityLit, Northlight, and the First Folio Shakespeare Festival, as well as Lifeline, Griffin, the Shakespeare Theatre of Washington D.C., the Michigan Shakespeare Festival, and the Stratford Festival Friends in Chicago.
My wife Jan and I are co-founders of A Crew of Patches, a Shakespearean repertory company in which I act, direct, and choreograph the violence. Jan was recently named the Artistic Director of the Michigan Shakespeare Festival. I am also a company member of Shanghai Low Theatricals, a playwriting collective.
My first novel, THE MASTER OF VERONA, was published by St. Martin's Press in 2007. It's now available in trade paperback.
