Jim Poulos

AEA/SAG-AFTRA

I was born and raised a California kid but I am a New Yorker at heart, thanks to getting cast in RENT on Broadway as Mark Cohen in 1998, a role I played for over 2 years. I’ve been a company member of plays and musicals on Broadway, National Tours, Off-Broadway, London, and Regional Theaters across the country, and I’ve worked with some amazing people along the way. I trained at the Pacific Conservatory for Performing Arts in Santa Maria, CA. I currently live in New York City with my wife, Director/Actor/Coach, Melissa Rain Anderson.
