He has a Bachelor of Science in Theatre from the University of Evansville and a Master of Fine Arts degree in Acting from Southern Methodist University.
The Winter's Tale is considered by some to be either a comedy or a romance, others might also say a tragedy. The main plot points involve issues of loyalty, fidelity, and honesty, along with exploring many different kinds of relationships between family members, spouses, and friends. The play also contains one of Shakespeare's most famous and challenging stage directions: 'Exit, pursued by a bear'.
