Dr. Renaissance


The evolution of Dr. Renaissance, affectionately known as “Doc” is rooted in both science and the arts. Doc earned his PhD in 2019 in Cancer Biology following a successful career as a Biomedical educator at the secondary and university levels and is currently working in the Biopharmaceutical industry. Doc enjoyed years of gymnastics and Hip-Hop dance at the University of Maryland. He trained extensively under Culture Shock DC and has enjoyed years of performing and teaching in the US and abroad. Through experience of Artistic Direction of companies including Future Shock DC, Afta Shock DC, and Splittin’ Image, Doc was led to direct his own company, New Renaissance Arts.

The fusion of arts and science for the greater good is at the core of Doc’s life and he enjoys intertwining logic and creativity to operate in the space of healing. This began with using dance as supportive therapy for sexual assault victims and in 2020, Doc formed One More Plate, Inc., a non-profit focused on bridging the gap between food resources and our currently unsheltered neighbors. In 2021, Doc was signed as modeling, acting, and voice acting talent in addition to dance by Main Line Models and Talent, a new and exciting frontier. Doc was last seen as Rocky in the live shadow cast of the classic Rocky Horror Picture Show and as Slink on Netflix’s Dance Monsters.
