DAN BERKEY: Starting out as a mathematician in Minneapolis, my primary dream from grade school, it came as something of a surprise to everyone, especially myself, when I jettisoned my studies in graduate school in 1979 to pursue acting. Despite the considerable hardships of life in the Biz, I’ve never regretted it. I moved to New York to get professional training at NYU Tisch School of the Arts Graduate Acting Program in 1986 and received my MFA in 1989. From that point I began working full time as a stage actor. In 2007 I began to explore film and TV. Since then I’ve completed 169 assorted film & TV projects.
