Few words about Griffin

I am a young actor and student from downeast Maine with a background in musical theatre and improv.

Bio

While my primary background is in musical theatre, I'm open to taking on any medium, especially roles that push me out of my comfort zone, or challenge my ability. I did not discover my passion for acting until I was a senior in high school, when a friend persuaded me to join him in auditioning for the school production of the musical Hello Dolly!. To my surprise, I was called back the next day and cast as the male lead. At a time in my life when I was struggling to find myself, theatre gave me a passion and a purpose I had never had before, something that will always be an inseparable part of my identity.
