Singer/Guitarist, starting in the early 1970s. As he turned toward acting, some 30 years ago, it was natural to lend his Live Sound experience to his acting responsibilities. Since 1994, he has been pretty much a fixture at American Theatre of Actors, having been involve in well over 100 productions, to date. Within the past 15 years, there’s hardly a production, as an actor, director or both, where he hasn’t taken on the responsibility as Sound Designer, and has been called into many other productions, specifically for his expertise as a Sound Designer. This year alone, he’s done the Sound Design for “A Lesson In Blood” by Anne L. Thompson-Scretching, “Leaving Lannahassee” by Lynn Navarra, “Snow Fox” and “The Dead Old Lady” by James Crafford, and “Tru Bone” by Michael Anthony Green. Following “Siren’s Den”, he is already committed to do the Sound Design for “P.O.W.” by Irving A. Greenfield, “Shelter” by Jack Gilbert, and “Sandman” by Lynn Navarra. He would like to thank his Most Understanding wife, Phyliss, for all her support through the years.
