Theatre has been a guiding force and major catalyst in my life. Theatre has provided many of my peak experiences, and through its driving force I developed my interest in musical composition and graphic design.

In Salem, Pentacle Theatre™ has been the primary venue for my activities. I have directed nine productions there, including some of the theatre’s most publicized, groundbreaking shows such as “HAIR” in 2000, and “Metropolis” in 2002.

In collaboration with Tony Zandol, technical director at Pentacle Theatre™, I have designed and painted numerous mural sized backdrops, some images of which are included on this page.

As a MIDI musician, I have constructed “virtual orchestra” recordings for theatre productions, including “The Pirates of Penzance” and “The Mikado,” which have been used across the country. MP3 samples are on this page.

Also in the digital realm, I use Photo Shop™ for “painting with photo images,” as seen in my photo gallery.

My 40 years as an actor and director are capsulized in the bio below.

I am available as a private acting coach, actor, director, MIDI musician/composer, mural or backdrop artist, and as a digital graphic artist.
