Ted has a BFA, cum laude, in Acting for Theater from Southwestern University, where he studied Viewpoints, Alexander Technique, Directing, Dance, Voice, etc. Upon graduating he joined the company of Austin Shakespeare, performed with Zilker Hillside Musical, and was one of the founding members of the Austiner Ensemble.

He is also a frequent performer for ZACH Theater's children shows and Austin Shakespeare's roaming production of the World's Fastest Hamlet.
