"I grew up in Port Huron, Michigan; an international border crossing marked by the spectacular Blue Water Bridge. Being the youngest of three boys, I studied violin as well as performed in my first play when I was just five years old.
My real desire to perform began in a community theater production of The Music Man, I got my first laugh and was hooked! My first time back on the stage since high school was in the Original Broadway cast of Titanic in 1997, I considered it my theater grad school.
When not on stage, I love raising my kids, and playing the violin in the subway. 
On My Ipod you'll find Stravinsky, Ives and Prokofiev!
I am ecstatic to be playing my dream role, Henry S. Etches in Titanic. I love the Titanic and am so happy to be back. "

Henry Samuel Etches was the first class bedroom steward aboard the Titanic, played by actor Drew McVety. Etches' station aboard the Titanic was on the raft portside of B Deck and was responsible for 8 cabins, along with one on A Deck (A-36), that of Thomas Andrews. He managed to board Lifeboat #5 and survived the sinking of the Titanic.
