Enrique Novello, Entertainer.
Enrique was born in New York City and raised in Brentwood, NY. His relationship with acting and filmaking began when his father first brought home a VHS camcorder. Soon enough every life event warranted documenting and most of his reports for school were video based.
He attended high school at St John the Baptist in West Islip, NY and afterwords attended York College of Pennsylvania where he pursued pre-medical studies with a minor in creative writing. Deciding that life in a hospital would be too constricting, he returned to New York and attended the State University at Stony Brook where he majored in Information Systems but ultimately switched to Economics with a focus on Finance and a minor in Theatre.
After obtaining an internship with a major investment firm, Enrique began a short lived career in the financial sector. As interesting as the business of wealth management was, he found it unfulfilling. Later, he would take a job as a youth counselor for at-risk teens in Long Island, NY as well as in Joliet, IL. Mentoring young men and women on the tenets of teamwork, responsibility and salesmanship was challenging and fulfilling work. Throughout all of his learning experiences one unifying theme remained: a need to perform! An all-consuming need to express himself through words and action for the benefit of others.
After dozens of jobs and countless adventures, Enrique decided that there was only one responsible course of action to take: study the craft of acting fully. In 2005, he began the most amazing journey of his life to date. Enrique began the process of meeting and studying under several very talented and seasoned acting coaches. The craft! With a focus on stage acting, Enrique dove into the disciplines of Meisner and Stanislovski. The thrill of being on stage was sublime.
"Stage is like being in Thunderdome, it's the real deal."
Over the years Enrique has been privileged to work under several amazing directors on film and television. He has also enjoyed the peculiar experiences of standing face to face with some of his heroes of the acting world (only rarely did he break character to tell them how much he appreciates their work). He works behind the scenes to produce films through partnerships with his production company, Origami Gate Films. Their first short, The Origami Gate, was an audience choice winner at The Garden State Film Festival.
A life long health enthusiast, Enrique has built a strong working knowledge of the body and operates a successful concierge fitness service in NYC. He is a nationally certified athletic conditioning coach and has worked with former Olympians, world class athletes, dancers and many other health conscious New Yorkers.
On top of that, Enrique is an avid investor who enjoys building businesses and traveling.
