He has toured the northwest twice–performing at The Bing Crosby Theatre in Spokane, Washington. He hit the stage at the Broadway Comedy Club in his hometown of New York City for his first sold-out one-man show, “People Are Suspect”. He followed up that performance with another sold-out one-man show at the Producer’s Club, “Don’t Mess With My Mess!” July 2018 he headlined a sold-out show at Dangerfield’s, “Brothers From Other Mothers”. He is the creator of a cartoon, “The Witless Protection Program”, with his sights set on a major network release in early 2020. In 2018 he finished filming for a role in “American Brawler”. His many onscreen credits include his role as the lazy porter, Romeo, in “Night Job” as well as sleazy producer, Costos Monteal, in“Vicky and Jonny”. Not one to rest on his laurels, he co-wrote, produced, and starred in a new feature-length comedy, “Charlie Boy”, starring alongside Kelly LeBrock and Academy Award Nominee, Burt Young-set for a 2019 release. He is also a regular guest on John Fugelsang’s SiriusXM show, “Tell Me Everything.”
