Teaching since:
January 2004

Hi! I've been teaching and directing theatre arts at the high school level since 2004. I've taught fundamentals to advanced classes, including improvisation, lighting, sound, carpentry, theatre history, IB Theatre, and much more.

Along with teaching, I've directed many shows, too. Some of the more memorable ones include Legally Blonde, Much Ado About Nothing, The Odd Couple: Female Version, Footloose the Musical, Sylvia, and Barefoot in the Park.

I'm also a singer/songwriter. I've been learning music since elementary school and writing since 1996. It's always been a personal hobby that I took very seriously. As a result, I've written a number of songs for myself as well as for clients. Check me out on iTunes!
