He has appeared in GoJo Clan Productions’ award-winners "A Family Affair" by Albi Gorn and "The Late Gordon Kaplan" by Robin Anne Joseph.

He does fundraising for Harrison Apar Field of Dreams Foundation, a non-profit that benefits education and recreation in memory of his son, who stood three feet due to dwarfism, and felt 10 feet tall when performing on stage.
