I am Returning to Oregon!!!

I am Returning to Oregon!!!

In 2007 I moved to New York City to find more opportunities to perform. In the 8+ years I have lived here I have been fortunate to work with some very talented people in some remarkable venues. Most recently, of course, I was aboard the largest cruise ship in the world, The Allure of the Seas, appearing in Mamma Mia!

In New York I met my dear partner Emily Ross-Johnson and made some great friends. I have grown, and with the help of Sam Moorman I have become healthier and more fit.

Now I am moving on to a new adventure that I think will help round out my soul. And to do it I am going back home to Oregon and back to Camp Namanu. I’m dragging Emily with me, of course!

I was fortunate enough to serve as Director of Namanu for Camp Fire Portland from 2002 to 2004. Along with Brian Hayes, Tony Profitt, Keith Thomajan, Lafcadio Adams, and others, I helped begin a revitalization that is apparent at the site today.

I will again be serving as the Director of Namanu Programs and Facilities (the title got bigger!). It is my intention to help make Camp Namanu a safe, fun place for children to sing and enjoy the outdoors in the company of friends, old and new. In fact, I think Namanu is poised to be the premiere Oregon youth camp. Plus it turns 100 in 2024, so I’ve got a target to hit.

To those of you who have been my friends and companions in performance, thank you. I will continue to perform in Portland and produce Kick Ass Oregon History. You will be welcome beneath the trees along the Sandy River. In fact I wonder if there might be opportunities for theatre there. (Anyone need a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment in Astoria?)

For those of you whom I know from camp days…I have some ideas. Let’s be in touch.

I’m going to be Walrus again.

Mamma Mia on The Allure of the Seas

Mamma Mia on The Allure of the Seas

I have been playing “Bill Austin,” one of the dads in the Smash hit Musical Mamma Mia, aboard Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas. (I am required to inform you that the Allure is the largest cruise ship in the world. (For now.))

See me as Bill through December 2015!

In November my father, Gary, and my brother Peter, and I went to Nicaragua for 15 days. Here is a slideshow of a few of the images from that trip.

Portland photographer Mike Lindberg (no relation) has done some lovely bearded headshots for me to use. I love the fact that Portland is the backdrop for these great shots.

Joe Egg at Shaker Bridge Theatre, New Hampshire

Joe Egg at Shaker Bridge Theatre, New Hampshire

I will be appearing as Brian in “A Day in the Death of Joe Egg” at the Shaker Bridge Theatre, in Enfield, New Hampshire!

Joe Egg by Peter Nichols

May 2-18

Brian and Sheila keep their marriage alive by believing it’s better to laugh than cry – fortunately, they are natural born entertainers. But one night, ten years into bearing up laughing while caring for their disabled daughter, nicknamed “Joe Egg,” the wheels of their fine-tuned comedy act start to fall off. Written by celebrated British playwright Peter Nichols, this play has been heralded by London’s National Theatre as one of the most significant plays of the 20th century

“They’re a truly, spontaneously funny couple – so funny that they break your heart”
– N.Y. TIMES

“a masterpiece of comedy and comic acting” – CURTAIN UP
