Shakespeare & Classical Text
Most of my early work as an actor was with Shakespeare and classical plays. I've studied Shakespeare and text with Peter Francis James (RADA, Yale Drama), Rob Clare (RSC), Vik Sivalingam (Almeida Theatre, LAMDA), Grace Zandarski (Yale Drama, The Actors Center), and more.
Solo Show Development
I have created and produced two successful solo shows and am available for script consultation and direction as you develop your project. I believe strongly in the power of personal narrative and the importance of sharing new voices for the stage.
As a teacher, I have experience in a variety of educational settings, including arts education programs, artist residencies in public schools, and at the college level. I began my career after college as a teacher's assistant in a high school special education classroom before pursuing acting full-time.
I was a company member with the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey for five years and taught Shakespeare in their educational theater programs. I taught playwrighting with Writers Theatre of New Jersey and was a regular performer with their award-winning Young Playwrights Festival. I've also guest lectured in the education and theater departments at CCNY and am currently a guest instructor at HB Studios.
I have the deepest respect for actors and understand the stress that a life in the theater can bring. Since moving to NYC, I've been working with actors as a mentor and coach. I try to pass on the generosity and support that many teachers offered me.
As a filmmaker, I also bring technical knowledge that can make filming self-tape auditions efficient and easy.
Actors I've worked with are currently attending Yale School of Drama, Harvard/ART, the University of North Carolina, and NYU Graduate Acting. Recent client bookings include Netflix's Jessica Jones and Mindhunter, as well as theater projects across the country.
