About Me

RJ is an actor, writer, and voiceover artist living in New York. His first acting job came in fifth grade when he was cast as Santa Claus in the Lakewood Elementary annual holiday musical The Elves' Impersonator. Playing the jolly fellow at such a young age somewhat ruined his childhood, but it laid the foundation for the performer he is today.  

As an actor, he's appeared on Broadway in Manhattan Theatre Club's revival of Saint Joan,  in a number of plays off-Broadway, and in a handful of tv shows and on-camera commercials.
