I am an experienced theatre teacher and director who has worked professional theatre companies from Boston, to Cleveland, and here locally in Indianapolis. I specialize in narrative storytelling techniques and a precise, curated collaboration with my students to create a portfolio of work that represents their needs as a public speaker, or actor. I have privately coached for large-scale keynote addresses, short-film stars, and a plethora of student and adult actors preparing to dive into an upcoming audition, or role. Working with me means forming a love relationship with your work, and leaving the room a more comfortable and confident presenter.

Hello prospective students!
I am a professional director, dramaturg, and educator currently living in the Indy area. I believe in a fully collaborative process with my students, creating a unique curriculum to suit their needs and interests as performers or public speakers. I specialize in narrative storytelling strategies and audition/public speaking prep. Together, we will discover what the story is that YOU want to tell, and develop a way of telling that story that is dynamic, engaging, and beautiful.
I have worked with such professional companies as Cleveland Play House, the Alliance Theatre, Roots' School of Theatre, and Apollinaire Theatre Company. My private students have gone on to star in short films, excellent community and professional theatre productions, and deliver fantastic keynote addresses to audiences of more than one thousand people.
Together, we can assess your needs as a student, and how best I can meet those needs as your coach and collaborator.
