Biography

Conrad is a New York-based film and stage actor and screenwriter. He is a graduate of the two-year Meisner training program at the William Esper Studio in midtown Manhattan.

 

Originally from Colorado, he earned a bachelor's and a few years experience as a mechanical engineer before finding his calling in the world of film and stage. 

 

Conrad also spent much of his youth as a fiercely competitive athlete in wrestling, soccer, rock climbing, acrobatics, and trail running, among others. He plays the piano and sings a decent tenor as well. Additionally, Conrad has built a reputation as a respected writer and speaker in the universal basic income (UBI) space, and is co-creator and producer of the docuseries, Bootstraps.

Conrad is always working on developing screenplays in parallel to honing his craft as an actor. See Reviews & Projects page for more on what's to come.
