Q – Why did you audition for Arcadia?
A – I auditioned for Arcadia because I like the play and that it is set in 19th century England. Part of it is 20th century, but my part is 19th century. I love the mystery surrounding the play and trying to figure it out.
Q – What shows might people have seen you in before?
A – All my acting credits are from the Parkway Playhouse. I have been seen in “1776”, Outlander, Dancing at Lughnasa, Walking Across Egypt, Sherlock Holmes, Big River, Treasure Island, to name a few.
Q – What is a typical day like for you?
A – I am a Financial Advisor for Wells Fargo Advisors, so a typical day for me is helping my clients achieve their financial goals.
Q – How have you prepared for your character?
A – I have prepared for my character by learning how to speak with an English accent and reading about Mr. Richard Noakes in the play. He is a muddling old landscape architect.
Q – What’s the #1 reason someone should see this show?
A – People should see the show for the wonderful work that it is. Tom Stoppard is a genius.
Q – Anything else that you’d like people to know about you?
A – I am very proud to be a West Point grad and served twenty years in the US Army. Enjoy the show!!
