He caught his first break when cast in the original Broadway and national tour of “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.” During the staging at the Ahmanson Theatre, he took to the Los Angeles lifestyle and sought to return, which he did after a stint as guest artist and acting teacher at Portland State U.
