“I pretty much grew up at Krupinski Dance Academy under the tutelage of Mark and all the talented instructors there. Studying tap, jazz, and ballet really prepared me for the number of Muny shows, summer-stock roles, and even viral videos that I would get involved with in the years that followed!
I have since been living in Los Angeles since 2008 and continue to perform whenever I get a chance. I went from dancing and acting on stage to now writing and producing behind the camera alongside my wife Emily McGregor — we’ve been happily since 2013. In my day-to-day I work in digital media, helping clients like Kevin Hart establish themselves on YouTube and various other social media outlets.
On a personal level, my time with the Krupinski family — and Mark specifically — was integral to building my personal confidence on stage and off. I went from a nervous kid with far, far too many questions, to someone who could be trusted to vamp or step in at a minute’s notice to help the show. I would not be the improviser I am today without those critical moments of trust that were shown to me, to believe in myself, and to challenge myself even things become most difficult. I want to sincerely thank Krupinski Dance Academy for teaching me that.”
