Having received his theatre and performance training at every stage of his life; taking many classes and workshops in classical technique, singing, scene study, text analysis, movement and voice, in Montreal and at Queens University in Belfast, Northern Ireland. He has consistently reinvested in his strengths and successes, regularly participating in improvisation, camera, movement and voice workshops, most recently the Syllabes workshop for voice performance for radio ads.
Don has had the very great pleasure of working with some of Canada’s premier theatrical talents; performing in no less than ten plays at the Hudson Village Theatre, including The Foursome, directed by Andrew Johnston and Chapter Two, directed by Dean Fleming. He has also appeared at Theatre Lac Brome, in Knowlton Quebec, in Moonlight and Magnolias, directed by Ellen David. Additionally, Don appeared at the Centaur Theatre in Relative Good, written and directed by David Gow, Raisin in the Sun, directed by Tyrone Benskin and at the Segal Centre for the Performing Arts in Ebsen’s Enemy of the People.
Don was a lead actor, creative contributor and associate producer with Gravy Bath Productions, the critically acclaimed Montreal based, independent theatre company, which received consistently high praise from audiences and critics alike, as well as many other accolades and awards. In 2004, Don himself received the Montreal English Critic’s Circle Award (MECCA) for Best Actor for portrayal of Oscar Wilde in the theatrical adaptation of Wilde’s infamous prison letter, De Profundis, produced by Gravy Bath Productions and directed by Matthew Tiffin.
Don has also appeared on screen in a number of TV shows, and films; including but not limited to; 18 to Life and The Kate Logan Affair, in addition to two separate roles on Spike’s Blue Mountain State.
Don continues to work incessantly, having booked a wide variety of roles in 2016 alone. More specifically, this year he appeared in two commercials, for Van Houtte and Hydro-Quebec. Additionally, Don will be featured in upcoming episodes of Fatal Vows and Bravo’s critically acclaimed 19-2. In addition to this, he will also appear in Incendo’s movie of the week, Early Release, as well as in the upcoming indie web-series SKAL.
Don hopes to further explore his passion for voice performance, narration and voicing characters. He also hope to further develop as a theatre artist, having recently directed Aristophanes’ “Lysistrata” and the hilarious farce “Whose Wives Are They Anyway”, by Michael Parker.
Aside from acting and directing, Don is an avid swimmer, hiker as well as a novice sailor, and loves the open water and being outdoors. He is also a passionate reader, writer, a natural science and history buff, as well as a serious news junkie.
