With Ophelia Theatre Group's Underground Reading Series in Mamet's Sexual Perversity in Chicago. In this reading I play Danny, a young guy in the late 1970's sowing his wild oats (or at least trying to). This month, I also changed hats and directed a short play with OTG called Nothing Personal, a story about nepotism and blackmail within the education system. Lots of fun!

About Me

Welcome!

Hi, I'm Morgan, an actor based in New York. Since 2007, I've been working steadily on stage with regional theaters and companies in Manhattan. My big passion is classical theatre, like Shakespeare, and I've been fortunate enough to play some of the great roles - Hamlet, Brutus, Henry VI and more. Internationally, I've created and starred in Third Child, a post-modern adaptation of the Oresteia myth, which featured in Italy and the Czech Republic. In 2015, I'll be branching out to work more in the film and television industries, and also voiceover.

When not performing, I'm normally teaching or training in classical Japanese swordsmanship. At age 13, I formally began to study Kendo, modern Japanese fencing, and have competed in prestigious tournaments across the country. In 2013, I founded Enshinkan Kendo Dojo, in Astoria New York, where I serve as head instructor for adults and children. More information about my Kendo school can be found at www.enshinkan.com.

Thanks for visiting, and please feel free to contact with questions or regarding future opportunities. I look forward to collaborating with you soon!
