I make theatre because I believe it has the power to inform, inspire, and change minds.  

I am a Teaching Artist, Actor, and Director, specializing in Ensemble-Devised creation, Shakespeare, and K-8 Education. I also love to sing and play the ukulele.

I received a Bachelor’s in Theatre Arts from the University of San Diego, where I founded Student Lab Theatre still in existence today. I performed and taught in the San Francisco Bay Area for several years, and then moved to Boston where I received a Masters in Theatre Education from Emerson College, focusing on Applied Theatre, Theatre for Young Audiences, and Voice Work. 

I have trained extensively with Shakespeare and Company in Lenox, MA, and have trained in the Linklater Voice technique.

As an actor in the Bay Area I was a member of the Ragged Wing Ensemble of Oakland, CA where I performed in and co-created multiple devised shows, and also taught with their High School program. I also originated roles in the Bay One Acts Festival, and performed as many characters in Shakespeare’s plays.

In Boston, I was involved in several productions with my colleagues at Emerson College, and also performed in Charles Mee’s Trojan Women: A Love Story with Artists’ Theater of Boston.  

Most recently I Co-Directed an original production called The Fear Project with Open Theatre Project

Now I'm back in the great Northwest where I am teaching with Northwest Children's Theatre & School, Oregon Children's Theatre, and New Moon Productions
