Act II of my life began after retiring as the Dean of Theatre at the AW Dreyfoos School of Arts in West Palm Beach.  After a brief intermission attending summer programs at Shakespeare’s Globe (London) and the Juillard School (New York), I began to pursue my professional acting and directing careers.  I feel fortunate that I’ve found some success on both sides of the table, but now wish to concentrate more on performance.  I enjoy both stage and screen, but have booked more screen than stage.  I welcome opportunities to audition for more roles.  I continue to study my craft and hone my skills.  For the past two years, I’ve been a member of Burt Reynolds’ Master Acting Class.  I’m also a member of Shooting Blanks Improvisation Troupe which weekly rehearses and periodically performs.  I believe that improvisation helps me be a valuable team player.  Likewise, I attend private acting and voice lessons, workshops, and seminars as often as possible.  Without a need for a “day job,” I’m available to travel.  As I look forward to Act III of this life, I’d like to fill it with experiences with YOU.
