He continued his early theatrical career at summer camp, in regional theatre and at the Governor's School for the Arts in Pennsylvania.

Off-Broadway he played the title role in the 400th-year-anniversary production of Henry V and was commended for the best performance by an actor in a play by Theatre.com's Peter Filichia.
