Teaching Philosophy:

I am excited every day to step into the classroom and lead students through a path of discovery, in which they will understand everything involved in creating a live theatrical production. There is the amazing world of the stage environment, created by the scenery; the abstract magic of theatrical lighting; the character details created by actors costumes; the emotional impact of the soundscape; or the engaging digital world of projections. Theatre teaches us how to collaborate with one another in a successful productive process. For me, these skills will always be important to life success.
