How many people can say they make their living making people think, create and laugh? I do. The joy and passion I feel when teaching acting, directing, improvisation and speech communication is priceless. Teaching others to think "out of the box" requires methods of pedagogy that are unique to each student, well structured with clear objectives, encourages others to experiment and take risks, and promotes positive thinking that inspires students to create.

After living in Italy and traveling the world I find translated works fascinating.

My classes are loud and buzzing with energy. Students are constantly working in class with very little, if any, down time. The level of energy they produce is contagious. Their commitment to the subject matter, the joy and passion they express in and about their work amazes me. Reciprocity?

I have been teaching at the University and College level since I was in graduate school, the first time. Directly after grad school I worked on several feature films as a Production Coordinator and Consultant.
