What's Up?

I've recently spent a year bouncing around the Hundred Acre Wood in Disney's Winnie the Pooh, rotating the roles of Tigger and Eeyore! I first joined the show in Chicago at the Mercury Theatre in March 2022, and then made my OFF-BROADWAY DEBUT with the show at Theatre Row! Following NYC, I joined the FIRST NATIONAL TOUR of Disney's Winnie the Pooh, which included a 6 week sitdown in LA at the Center Theatre Group. Check out our rave review from ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY!

In May 2023, I immersed myself in the puppetry community, attending the National Puppetry Conference at the O'Neill Theatre Center, studying Shadow Puppetry with Fabrizio Montecchi!

Over the summer, I returned to one of my favorite places, Maples Repertory Theatre, to officially enter my dad era, playing Harry Bright in Mamma Mia! Afterwards, I returned to Chicago, helping out with Keruffle's remount of The Conductors.

What's Next?


I'm currently back in Chicago, and busy with a variety of projects. Coming up first, I'm thrilled to work with Manual Cinema for the first time, understudying Manual Cinema's Christmas Carol at Writers Theatre through the holidays!

I will also be workshopping a new devised Shakespeare piece with Theatre Unspeakable, which will have a public presentation in November 2023.
