After graduation, he moved to New York City, got the role of Romeo in Romeo and Juliet, and began touring in Shakespeare companies all over the country.

He has appeared in The Herbal Bed on Broadway, and Off-Broadway in such shows as As You Like It, Altitude Sickness, Thanksgiving, Macbeth, The Women of Shakespeare, The Way of the World and J.B.
