Jeff most recently performed as Fountainhead in Water by the Spoonful with Theatre 22 (also directed by Julie Beckman), Benedick in Much Ado About Nothing with Greenstage, and in the illustrious holiday favorite, The Christmas S#!tshow as Tim Allen, The Grinch and The Blessed Virgin Mary. Jeff has performed coast to coast with such companies as Mill Mountain Theatre, Fusion Theatre Company, Key City Public Theatre, and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Other favorite roles include Sam in Fully Committed, Sir Toby in Twelfth Night, Boyd in The Big Bang, and Frank Butler in Annie Get Your Gun. In his copious free time* Jeff works as a banker, a theater manager, a fiancée, and a father. He would like to thank everyone at the Latino Theater Project for the opportunity to play this wonderful role, Julie Beckman for her amazing confidence, his fiancée Jennifer for encouraging him to follow his joy, and his son Dylan for reminding Jeff that no matter how young he feels – he’s still not hip. Go Niners!
*Free time not copious at all.
