Don excels as our resident go-to casting director for youth castings, finding real families and kids for our many clients. With over 15 years’ experience teaching fine arts and musical theatre to children, Don exudes a natural charisma that puts children at ease drawing out their energy and uncovering their unique potential. When he’s not casting commercial projects with GENUINE, Don’s busy seeing every Broadway show he possibly can – (and multiple times, too!) He also works remotely as the Artistic Director to Chicago’s Stage Door Fine Arts, a successful youth arts education program that he founded more than ten years ago. He often travels from city to city, leaving his mark wherever he goes!
