My two strongest passions have always been live performance and the written word. These have led me to a twenty year career as a theater director, focusing on new plays. My greatest joys come from guiding actors to mine everything they can from the text, and performing truthfully, and working with writers to help them realize their vision.


Since receiving my MFA in directing I have worked consistently as an educator in colleges, theater companies and as an acting coach. I also work with individuals as a speaking coach. I am excited to help people with their text, ensuring that their message is clear, and teaching them how to engage their audience.
