I'm a NYC based actor from Austin, Texas with a huge case of ADD, that resulted in a background in musical theatre, jazz piano, juggling, and many sports. Aside from acting and dance, I was a varsity tennis player, and competed at the national level for two sports, National Collegiate Table Tennis (NCTTA 2010), and on the U21 National Kayak Polo Team (based in Austin, Texas). I've also been a juggler for the past 15 years (5 club cascade and club passing), and jazz pianist (1 year training with Grammy Winner Hank Hehmsoth, and (in an freak chance meeting, 6 months with 2 time Grammy Winner Floyd Domino). I love all things tap dance and Golden Age Musical Theatre, and have many influences including Sammy Davis Jr, Gene Kelly, and Fred Astaire.

I love to teach, and find particular joy in jump starting passion in other people for the random professions that I enjoy!

Sean is an excellent coach and he elevated my game in the first session alone. He is personable and enthusiastic and I very much look forward to working with him in future sessions.
