Hello!!! My name is J.D.
I was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. I attended Carnegie Mellon University where I received a BFA in Acting/ Musical Theater. Since graduating I have worked in theaters all over NYC, L.A., and Greater America in productions on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and Regionally. I have been fortunate to have helped develop a number of projects from their early stages to full, critically acclaimed productions including X OR BETTY SHABAZZ VS. THE NATION, VENICE, A CIVIL WAR CHRISTMAS, & THE BOX.
Developing new work is a passion for me,
as I love breaking new ground.
ON-CAMERA I’ve also had some very cool experiences shooting roles on Shameless, SVU, Madam Secretary, and Shades of Blue; and filming a number of shorts with some very talented up-and-coming directors. In addition, I’ve lent my voice via ADR/Looping to a multitude of films and shows including The Americans, Instinct, Quantico, Boardwalk Empire, Blue Bloods The Deuce, Monster, Paterson, among many others. This medium offers limitless potential to tell great, meaningful stories and I am excited for what the future holds.
MUSIC is also a huge part of my life....as a songwriter, I am influenced by a myriad of traditions and styles from the Amazon Jungle to the Far East; From Reggae and Hip Hop to House, Jazz and Folk. I’m primarily a vocalist and also play guitar and percussion. Check out some tracks on the Music Page!
