Don graduated from Lehigh University with an B.S. in Industrial Engineering (oops) and moved to Baltimore to work for an engineering firm. A series of unfortunate events (car broken into, apartment flooded, watched Jeopardy every night alone) prompted him to move back to New Jersey and follow his passion. A family friend introduced him to the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, and after taking some classes he was hooked. Don found a love of acting and wanted to do everything in his savings account to get better, which led him to study for two years with Bill Esper at the William Esper Studio.
Don recently was selected to perform at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, in the New Faces: Characters division. His one man show, Mr. Jersey's Neighborhood is currently running at the UCB Theatre and he performs with The Stepfathers every Friday night at 9pm at the UCB Theatre in Chelsea. He also co-wrote and co-starred in Sketches From an Italian Restaurant: A Billy Joel Sketch Show which ran for a year at the UCB and received great reviews. Don has appeared on 30 Rock, Inside Amy Schumer, Broad City, and Late Show with David Letterman as well as national commercials, comedic web series, viral videos, and two horror films.
Don also loves cooking, reading, playing the guitar and piano, and spending time with his very animated Italian family.
