I was born in the Boogie Down Bronx and raised on the Jersey Shore in the heart of Springsteen/Bon Jovi country. After working a variety of jobs including getting shot at by paintballs while pretending to be Saddam Hussein, vacuuming the Seaside Heights, NJ boardwalk at three in the morning, DJing in Piccadilly Circus, London at a tourist trap 50's American diner (Princess Di and the wee princes came in one day) and temping as a paralegal where at one law firm I was stationed on a empty floor by myself and given no work to do for five months, I decided I needed some career stability. So I became an actor. Since then I've worked in independent films, TV, off Broadway, commercials and voiceovers. Recent credits include The Blacklist, The Affair, Bull, Blue Bloods, a soon to be airing Netflix show (can't say what yet) and the upcoming film Ben Is Back with Julia Roberts and Lucas Hedges. In Spring 2017 I completed production on The Incoherents, a rock n roll comedy feature I wrote, co-produced and was part of the cast. Check out the link provided on the site to learn more about the project. Signing Off, a short film I wrote, will be shot in spring 2018. I live in a part of Brooklyn where beards are not a requirement with my wife, son and daughter.
