About

I received my B.A. in Drama from the Ohio State University and my M.F.A. in Theatre Arts from the University of Washington’s Professional Actor Training Program. A member of AEA and SAG-AFTRA, I have been working as a professional actor since 1997 and as a teaching artist upwards of 25 years, working with ages 3 to adult.

I have appeared in theatres across the U.S., and the U.K., including the Lincoln Center, Cherry Lane, George Street Playhouse, Shakespeare Theatre (DC), Capital Rep, Hartford Stage, Portland Center Stage, Virginia Stage, Berkeley Rep, ACT, Camden People’s Theatre (London), Denver Center for the Performing Arts, and with the Royal Shakespeare Company, (a UK tour ending in London at the Barbican).

I’ve also worked as a Role-Playing Consultant for Littler-Mendelson as well as with NITA, the National Institute for Trial Advocacy Training over the past decade.

As a vocal coach, I have had the honor of working with executives, entrepreneurs, English language learners – introverts and extroverts. My voice coaching is influenced by many master teachers of voice including Patsy Rodenburg, Cecily Berry, Arthur Samuel Joseph, Kristin Linklater and Dale Carnegie, working recently with Annie Morrison at RADA (Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts) in the UK. Finally, I consider my 4 years of in-depth study with the late Angeles Arrien author of The Four-Fold Way: Walking the Paths of the Warrior, Teacher, Healer, and Visionary as important inspiration in my work.
