Ralph is basically a newborn when it comes to improv. Living in Los Angeles from 2001-2006, he worked in the entertainment industry, holding every job from Production Assistant to Producerâ€™s Assistant, eventually ending as an Assistant Art Director for a Showtime sketch comedy show. After moving back to Philly, he took his first improv class in 2008 as a birthday present to himself, and immediately fell in love. Heâ€™s studied under Jason Stockdale and Mark Bringhurst, earning gold stars for both Perfect Attendance and Most Hats.
In 2009, he auditioned for PHITâ€™s 3 Mad Rituals, their entry into the Philly Fringe Festival that year. He was completely shocked when he learned heâ€™d been cast in the production, and may have literally crapped himself with excitement. The show was an amazing experience, and Ralph was doubly excited when he learned the 3 Mad Rituals team would be staying together and becoming a PHIT house team, King Friday.
When not performing, Ralph works at a non-profit downtown. He also paints, does graphic design, and is a video game junkie. He feels lucky to have the opportunity to work with such talented and dedicated performers at PHIT, and can only hope to be a tenth as funny as all of his friends at the theater.
