Every third Wednesday, a fabulous actor/singer/dancer will fill out my nosey little questionnaire and offer a glimpse of what they look like from a bit closer than the mezzanine. For October, you don’t have to come to New York to see our theater buff; he’s coming to see you!

Current Show/Role: Memphis First National Tour / Beale Street Ensemble
The best part of the show I’m in now is: Seeing the way people feel after they’ve seen the show.
The most challenging job in show business I ever had was: Well, who doesn’t have Disney World horror stories? But I think it would have been when I was ushering at the summer show NickToons Summer Jam at Kings Dominion and knew that I could dance just as well as the kids on stage.
If I wasn’t an actor, I would be: Ah, well, whatever God had given me the talent and gift for. But most likely something with people.
Cape, Mask or Spandex? Cape all the way! (I’ve even bought the pattern and made my own before.)
The one luxury I’m taking on the road with me is: I don’t think Luxury is a word I could even put there, but I had to bring my stuffed animal Appa (the flying bison from Avatar: The Last Airbender.)
The city I’m most looking forward to visiting on tour is: Toronto, never been there!
If I could add one city to this tour, anywhere in the world, it would be: London! Never been there either, or somewhere in Australia (I’m exotic over there! hehehehe)
