Courses I Teach: 


I guess you could call working in the acting profession "field research." I've been fortunate enough to work in regional theatres in California, New Jersey, Vermont, New Hampshire, upstate New York, and even NYC. I've been nominated for regional awards in upstate New York and New Hampshire. I continue to study with master teachers and am always looking for ways to improve my own artistry.
