Greetings from Providence, RI!

The months of October and November have been CRAZY!!!!! The run of She Loves Me in Sherborn was brief but successful. Doug Hodge is a great director and it was a privilege to work with him again. Rehearsals for Pirates of Penzance are going well. They’d better be, because we open in a week and […]


On-screen work picking up?

I’ve been trying for a couple years now to get work in commercials, industrial films, and other local film and video projects. So far it’s been all auditions and no work, except for one photo shoot and some background work. Maybe things are turning around, though. This past Monday I had my first speaking part […]


I’ve been a bad boy

I said I’d post more frequent updates, didn’t I? Well, at least this time only three months have passed since the last post, compared to six months the time before. The Hovey Summer Shorts were great fun. I got the rare opportunity to do a dramatic (rather than comedic) piece as well as a comedy […]


I’m still alive

Wow, over six months since my last entry. Whoops! It’s been an extremely busy time for me in all aspects of my professional and personal lives. Some of the highlights included: A very successful run of Alarms and Excursions at the Hovey Players in Waltham last January. An enormously successful run of Blackadder II:Live at […]


Next up: Alarms and Excursions

I’ve been cast in Michael Frayn’s Alarms and Excursions, to be produced by the Hovey Players in Waltham, Mass., from January 14-29, 2011. We’ve had one week of rehearsals so far and I think it’s going to be a fun show. When I was 15, I saw Frayn’s Noises Off in London’s West End and nearly fell […]


It’s showtime!

Tonight’s the dress rehearsal for A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. It’s pretty amazing what we’ve been able to pull together in only a month with just 9 hours of rehearsal a week. Kudos to director Doug Hodge, who plots a sure course and runs a tight ship. I’ll miss the show […]


National Parks slide show

As a way of introducing myself to video editing, I created a slide show of the photos I took in June 2010 at Zion, Bryce, and Grand Canyon National Parks. I’ve posted it to Vimeo. Watch it in full-screen mode if you can.


Auditioning for commercials

Auditioning for stage plays and auditioning for commercials are about as similar as teeing off with a driver and making a putt. And right now, I think my commercial audition skills might be even worse than my golf game. I just finished a callback for a thirty-second commercial in which I was to play a […]


Interview with CringeFest artistic director

Melba LaRose was interviewed about the International CringeFest, now running in Times Square. She mentions that one of her favorite pieces in the festival runs under five minutes. Hmmm … Phil in Customer Service runs under five minutes. Could she have been talking about me?


Harvardwood

I’ve recently become co-chair of the Boston chapter of Harvardwood, a group of Harvard alumni, students, faculty and staff involved in arts, media, and entertainment. If you have a relationship with Harvard (and with the arts, media, and/or entertainment) and would like to get involved in chapter activities, please contact me.
