Theater is a uniquely collaborative, and perpetually evolving form of art. Its success depends on the cumulative effort of those passionately involved in developing a work from a play’s conception to its final performance, and it is because of this unique nature that I believe an awareness of theatre’s synchronicity is integral to a student’s learning and finding their place in the professional world. As a teaching artist, it is a privilege to bring my diverse skill set into every classroom as I help students find and develop their own voices. Educating students about the mechanics of theater, while also helping them understand the machinations of its development is integral to my process as a teaching artist, whether the course is focused on Play/Screenwriting, Acting/Scene-study, Acting for the Camera, Shakespeare, Voice, Devised Ensemble, or Theatre Management.
I’ve also taught a variety of and film workshops at colleges, universities, and community organizations. Below you will find a few links to some of the film projects I’ve had the pleasure of working on as a director/instructor over the years.
