Smart, funny, professional type with a character edge. Think Tony Shaloub, Richard Schiff, Stephen Root. Great with comedy, complex language, and improv. Put me in a suit in any NY procedural. Also therapists and rabbis. Yale Law School graduate with decades of acting training with master teachers from Shakespeare to clown. Acting is my job, divorce mediator for fun.
