I enjoy working on and telling great stories.   I’ve had the opportunity to work on many of NY’s TV dramas like Mr. Robot, Blue Bloods, The Americans, The Following, Damages and Nurse Jackie to name a few.  I’ve also been fortunate enough to work on many of New York’s stages in both classic and dramatic plays. One of my favorite plays and roles I worked on was Lee in True West. I’ve had the opportunity to perform the play both here in New York and at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe where I was fortunate to be directed by Tim Phillips. I alternated the roles of Lee and Austin every other night and as a cast we received 5 stars at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

The foundation of my acting training was studying with my mentors Wynn Handman and Tim Phillips. I have also had the incredible opportunity to study and work with some amazing artists like      Alec Baldwin, Kathleen Turner, Marian Seldes, Edward Albee,  Craig Lucas and many more talented directors and playwrights.

I am proud to be the son of hispanic parents and fortunate to have been given the opportunity to live and study in South American and learn how to speak Spanish fluently. Taking on huge challenges is in my DNA. I boxed in college, have run two marathons (New York, Philadelphia), run with the bulls in Spain and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2012.  And my biggest challenge to date has been writing and creating this play and making sure I honor all of the stories in The American Soldier.

What’s next for me?  After performing my play The American Soldier at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.,  I am scheduled to perform the play in Austin, Jamestown (Virginia) and Bannerman Island (New York).  I am also very excited to be turning my play into a film.
