Before acting, I spent 10 years teaching weekend courses, appearing on stage, and public speaking. Hence, 30-40 events per year called for improvisation on-the-fly as the sole focus in front of a crowd. Once I began to train in acting, Improv quickly became my favourite aspect of any performance.
Having grown up as the son of a professional vocal performer, with both of my siblings engaged in musical/vocal training for my entire childhood, singing is one of my most natural styles of performance. However, I grew up playing sports for my entire childhood, leaving music to my siblings. Once I decided to pursue acting as a career, I immediately started voice and vocal training, only to find out that my vocal range and capacity are already well-developed (likely as a result of my musical upbringing). I continue weekly singing lessons, developing the tool.
Current capacity: baritone to tenor.
I have spent decades exploring human movement. Not only do I have two university degrees focused on the human body, but I have spent years in dance (breakdancing, swing dancing), acrobatic sports (parkour, snowboarding, surfing) and teaching health and fitness-related content. An understanding of and freedom to express human movement is one of my strongest performance characteristics.
Having grown up in Atlantic Canada (where people speak extremely fast in both English/French) and having attained two university degrees, my capacity to sustain quick and confident discourse with complex terminology is one of my strongest features. I would enjoy the prospect of playing the nervous nerd, over-confident lawyer, or intelligent scientist, for example.
