Born to Cuban parents in Newark, New Jersey, it was clear at an early age that Dennis was destined for a career in the spotlight.  As a child he achieved notoriety as a gifted singer accompanying himself on guitar at recitals and local festivities.  He soon became known as “the Singing Scout” performing the National Anthem for the Boy Scouts of America at parades, dinners and community events across the state.  As his love for art and music evolved so did his passion for the theater which eventually led to a BFA  from Montclair State University and dozens of roles in NJ theaters.

After several detours through corporate America as a successful Human Resources executive, Dennis is finally back in “the business” working as a professional actor.  A graduate of T. Schreiber Studios’ Acting Conservatory program, he is continuously active in the New York theater scene and has appeared in many Off & Off-Off Broadway plays winning the Best Actor Award at the 2011 Strawberry One Act Play Festival for his portrayal of  Mr Thomas in “PAID OFF” and after appearing as Frank in “BALM IN GILEAD” at the Gloria Maddox Theater, winning the NY Innovative Theater Award for Outstanding Production of a Play in 2010.

Dennis has appeared in a variety of independent feature films including the lead role in the suspenseful indie thriller “THE IDEAL”, and supporting roles in “INTO THE LIMELIGHT”, “BEFORE THE SNOW”, “THREE FROM THE BLOCK” and “REUNION 108.”  Whether on stage or screen, he is always working and interested in new creative challenges.  Be sure to check the “News and Events” tab to see where he’s performing next!
