Hey everyone! Some of you may know me as the producer of the podcast I Don't Need an Acting Class with Milton Justice. I thought I would finally setup my own account and become a reader. Alas! This is something I'm doing for the joy of it, and also because it will help me continue to grow as an actor. As a reader, scene partner and coach, I'm here to serve YOU and YOUR WORK. Know that if we work together, I'll be 100% present in order to help you shine.

His hit autobiographical solo play FROM SHIP TO SHAPE, “…the funny and wrenching account of Vreeland's personal struggle with mental illness" (Newsday), enjoyed a sold-out run Off-Broadway in 2017. With original direction by Academy Award winner Milton Justice, it was the recipient of two United Solo Awards (Best One-Man Musical and Best Direction of a Musical). FROM SHIP TO SHAPE went on to tour the east coast, including stops at Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse, the Sarasolo Festival, (earning Walker the Sarasolo Award for Best Actor), and Bay Street Theatre, where Hamptons.com called Walker “a skilled and talented storyteller."

As a child actor, Walker did an Australian tour of Phantom of the Opera, and in his twenties, toured the US in A Christmas Carol. His regional theater credits include: Arthur in Arthur’s Christmas (The Vineyard Playhouse), Have a Nice Day (Theater Barn) and Zombie Prom (Theater Barn).
His film & TV credits include: Sex Farce (feature), Thinking Out Loud (short), A Beautiful Mind, MTV News, and the web series Two Mara.
