What brought you to New York?
I moved to NYC eighteen years ago to be the Associate Pastor of Metro Baptist Church, a progressive social ministry church in Hell’s Kitchen. Both the church and I knew that after the two-year internship ended, I would pursue a career as an actor. Today I work as an actor and educator, while continuing to be active in the ministries at Metro.

What do you enjoy about being a member of St. George’s Society?
I love the gatherings throughout the year that allow me to meet new folks and enjoy fun activities, all the while knowing that the money raised is helping people in need.

What is your favorite New York place or pastime?
Obviously, theatre is one of New York’s most impressive offerings. I enjoy Broadway, but especially enjoy the more intimate venues like the Irish Rep and 59E59.
