I am a tall, skinny young man who grew up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, otherwise known as Washington Heights or Dominican Central.  I love swimming; some might consider me the male mermaid. Last year, TDF Open Doors opened me to a pool of art, beauty, talent, and life lessons. Each show offered me a feeling of comfort and warmth. With theatre back into my life, I no longer feel like a fish out of water.
