As an actor for over 35 years, I have taken on roles written by Neil Simon, Stephen Sondheim, Aaron Sorokin, and Maury Yeston, to name a few. Born in Grand Rapids, MI. in 1958, I started out as an amateur in local theatre groups in 1975. Audiences in Grand Rapids would remember me as Col. Jessup in A FEW GOOD MEN, Tito in LEND ME A TENOR, and many other plays like INSPECTING CAROL, I'M NOT RAPPAPORT, CITY OF ANGELS, RUMORS, ROMANCE ROMANCE, and ASSASSINS. Beyond Grand Rapids; I spent four summers at Alpena's Thunder Bay Theatre, Cherry County Playhouse, and Indy's Beef 'n Boards.
On a whim, I took a chance and left for the NYC market in 1995. Principal roles in six National Tours covering all fifty states followed, including THE SOUND OF MUSIC, DAMN YANKEES, TITANIC, and the award winning Broadway revival tour of 1776. NYC stage credits also include Off Broadway appearances, as well as voices for Heineken, Web MD, Baker College, Fred Johnson for Congress, Weitz & Luxenberg, Meijer, Cambridge Associates, and Exxon Mobil. In addition to the stage, I publish and write the blog, Z-Blog. I am interested in taking on voiceover narration for PowerPoint presentations, Radio and Television commercials, Audiobooks, e-Learning and Corporate video.

My voice is a warm, conversational type. Friendly, yet persuasive. Able to act, or read like an announcer.
Working with Tom is a pleasure. While he really doesn't need much coaching, he is certainly amenable to taking direction and is, overall, a pleasure to work with and is wonderfully versatile. I wholeheartedly recommend working with him....Dave Kufeld, Director of Marketing & Client Relations, Weitz & Luxenberg, PC.Weitz & Luxenberg, PC.
