I have been directing for over 20 years, and still have a lot to learn. I hold an MFA from Mary Baldwin College/American Shakespeare Center, so my work is heavily influenced by their focus on audience connection. I’m the co-author, with Toby Malone, of Cutting Plays for Performance, from Routledge Press.
My favorite directing credits include Sperm Donor Wanted (2020) with Slow Your Role Theater Co., Romeo and Juliet (2012), The Duchess of Malfi (2016), Antony and Cleopatra (2018), and Richard III (2019) with Pigeon Creek Shakespeare, The Winter’s Tale (2013) at Bridgewater College, Noye’s Fludde (2014) at Eastern Mennonite High School, and JB (2011) at Eastern Mennonite University.
I am a frequent adjunct instructor at Eastern Mennonite University, James Madison University, and Bridgewater College, teaching theater history and speech. I also am a regular respondent for the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (Region II).
I’m an associate member of the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society and the Shakespeare Theater Association, and a Tier 3 member of Directors Gathering. I’m certified in Mental Health First Aid.
When I’m not in a theater, I work as a freelance software developer.
