My story begins back when I was a kid with a snap-on cape and a burning desire to change the world. And while most kids have some type of superhero complex when they are younger, they eventually outgrow it.

I have spent the vast majority of my life searching for the proverbial burning building that I would run into and save the day. Leaving my mark on this planet. However, stuff like that rarely shows up when or how we expect it to. But more on that later.

Performing in the 20th Anniversary International Tour of the Broadway Show Rent. That’s me on the far left playing bass in the band. Upon the realization that it might take a little longer to change the world than I thought, I got distracted. I found myself graduating from Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts with a degree in music performance and the impossible dream of one day performing on Broadway.

I was completely unqualified. I was too young and inexperienced. But what I lacked in experience I more than made up for in the ability to market myself and chase my dream with a level of tenacity that Broadway has never seen. And somehow that was enough to earn my place on stage as the bass player for the Tony Award Winning Broadway Show Rent.
