After his schooling at Grady High, he studied drama at age 17 in London for two years at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, then returned to the States and continued his studies at the American Academy in New York.

He made his NY stage debut in “Rebel Women” in 1976 at age 20 and appeared in regional productions, once playing the newspaper boy in a production of “A Streetcar Named Desire” starring Shirley Knight and Glenn Close.
