Teaching and Directing


I hold an M.F.A. in Acting from The Theatre School at DePaul University in Chicago, as well as a B.A. in Theatre and English from Indiana University-Bloomington.


By day I am the Drama teacher at Tempe Preparatory Academy, where I teach theatre to the 12th, 11th, and 6th grades and have directed ​The Pirates of Penzance, Carousel, My Fair Lady, Twelve Angry Men, Pride and Prejudice, and The Secret Garden, among others. During the summers I run the Southwest Shakespeare Company Summer Conservatory, where I have directed Julius Caesar, Macbeth, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and ​Romeo and Juliet.


I love working with actors of all ages, and am available for various directing gigs as well as workshops, master classes, and monologue and dialect coaching.
