I have an M.F.A. in Theater Directing from U.C.I. and over twenty years of experience acting, directing, private coaching and teaching in private and public schools across the U.S.

I have worked as an actor, director, stage manager and managing director in small professional theaters, as well as regional theaters, across the U.S., and toured internationally as an actor to Kenya and Korea.

I currently perform as an improviser with playback theater troupes. Recently, I have also become proficient as a filmmaker and film teacher. I work with Canon DSLRs and edit with Final Cut X.

My classical training is with Shakespeare & Co. (Tina Packer) in Lennox, MA. Other specialties include clowning & Commedia, viewpoints, mask, auditioning and directing conceptualization. I can also get you started with acting on camera.

As a filmmaker, I coach students in camera technique as well as editing, and specialize in visual storytelling. My students have won awards.

I look forward to working with you in any of the areas above, and helping you reach success in your endeavors! Please feel free to ask me further questions.

I can also coach you on on how to direct a play, or give you pointers on how to start your career. Ask me questions if you would like to learn more.
