1. How did you get started in theatre?
I never really have gotten started in theatre. A spear carrier in Aida. One of several disembodied hands wielding a cardboard dagger in an avant garde production best left unremembered.  The guy at the concession stand during intemission at the Tarragon for a couple of seasons. More of the same. Not so much a start as a drift into theatre.

2. What is your favourite part of the creative process?
I like seeing the mechanics and the logistics of putting together a production, being able to enjoy both the process and the finished product. Like knowing how a magic trick is accomplished and being able to better appreciate the skills of the magician executing it.

3. What are some challenges you face as an actor?
I haven’t a clue. Figuring that out is in itself a challenge. I think I’ll stick to background and blissful ignorance.
