We look to the past to shape our future. Who are you? Where are you going from here?

I am currently the longest-tenured member of the acting company.  I hope that my experience will continue to be of some value to TAM.

What most excites you about being a part of TAM’s 50th Anniversary Season?

Still being around for it!

We’re all about making old things new and new things classic. Why are you drawn to Classic Theatre? How do you shake it up?

This falls under the looking to the past to shape the future idea mentioned earlier. Classic theatre tests us as performers in ways that contemporary work does not, as we are required to delve into styles and concepts that may feel foreign to us and still make them relevant for our audience. I don’t feel the need to shake it up, but if a director wants to go there, I will follow.

Who inspires you and why?

I draw inspiration from many of the other actors that I work with, from the youngest and the most energetic, to the highly experienced and seasoned veterans.

You can have dinner with any three influential people. Who are your dream guests, why them, and what is the topic of conversation?

The answer to this question could change daily. Today I will say John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison, because I love the Beatles. The topic: where’s Ringo?

What recent accomplishment are you most proud of?

I just finished a production of the play Proof.  It was deceptively difficult, but I believe I wound up giving a strong performance.

What’s your super power?
