I’ve been acting on stage for… well, more years than I care to admit. At one time or another, I’ve performed and/or directed at most of the community and regional theatres in the area. And I also worked for ten seasons at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire–most memorably, selling pickles.
These days, my main acting job consists of performing one-man shows and storytelling programs with my touring series, Great Tales Live. (Please see the sidebar for more details.)
I’m also fascinated by Civil War history. I’ve led almost a thousand walking tours in Gettysburg, I perform as a living history interpreter along the Civil War Trails, and I speak on the Civil War for the Pennsylvania Humanities Council, as part of their “Commonwealth Speakers” lecture series.
And while I’m driving to and fro keeping up with everything, I love listening to podcasts–in particular, RadioLab and Backstory for non-fiction, and Pod Castle and Escape Pod for fiction. (Full disclosure: I’ve also narrated stories for Pod Castle, Escape Pod, and PseudoPod.)
I live in central Pennsylvania with my beloved wife Rhonda and a varying number of cats.
