Here's my current draft of my short bio. This is the version I'd use as
the welcome page to my website. Let me know whatchu think!
"I was born and raised in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, home of
Yuengling Beer, John O’Hara, and good old-fashioned coal!
How I came from such earthy roots and ended up an actor navigating the
streets of New York City sometimes astonishes me. But truth be told, my
interest in acting was sparked very early in my life...(perhaps too
early)...at the ripe age of 4...when I first watched the movie Jaws (I
know, what were my parents thinking??).
From Robert Shaw’s haunting account of the USS Indianapolis, to Richard
Dreyfuss’ energetic quips, to the sheer adventure of the shark hunt!...the
movie utterly captivated me. I would act out scenes with my two younger
brothers, even prop my mattress against the bed at an angle and pretend to
slide down the slippery boards of the ship into the mouth of the shark...
For a while, I kept my dream of becoming an actor a secret. However, as I
grew more confident, my secret passion for acting became my not-so-secret
passion, and I ultimately went on to study Theatre at Muhlenberg College,
which in 2011 was ranked as the Number One undergraduate theatre department
in America by the Princeton Review. I’ve also had the pleasure of studying
and performing Theatre in Italy and now New York City. I’ve had the
opportunity to work with established veterans of the industry such as Judd
Hirsch and Kathryn Kates, and I look forward to collaborating with others!
