While studying at ACT, Ron played the title role in the Exit Theatre's controversial reverse-cast production of Othello. Starting as a magician when he was nine, he wrote and performed in Houdini: The Great Escape, a play he wrote. He has traveled Europe where he performed in Shakespeare festivals and television. He recently performed in Seminar and God of Carnage at Left Edge Theatre, King Lear at Marin Shakespeare, Blithe Spirit and The Foreigner at the Ross Valley Players. He's won three Bay Area Theatre Critics' Award, one for his solo adaptation of Dickens' A Christmas Carol.
