Assistant Professor, Theatre & Dance
3347 Lodwick Dr. NW
Hailing from the frozen tundra of Northern Michigan, where nonsense can get you killed, I pursue a simple theatre that embraced delight, discipline, magic, and community. As a freelance director and dramaturg, I have worked with the Burning Coal Theatre Company, Savannah Actor's Theatre, City of Savannah Bureau of Cultural Affairs, The Boarshead Theatre, and Big Dawg Theatre Company. My work has been lauded for its passion and quality in Encore: Wilmington. I am also a member of the Lincoln Center Theatre Director's Lab. I currently direct the drama program at Kent State University's Trumbull Campus in Warren, OH, but have also taught at schools in Texas, Georgia, and North Carolina. I like to place theatre in the context of the liberal arts, and believe that acting really is far simpler (not necessarily easier) than we give it credit for. My work with study abroad programs was profiled in Southern Theatre Magazine. I am currently studying Alexander Technique as a way of continuing my research into the actor's practice. As a scholar I have published in the Texas Theatre Journal and presented to the SETC Theatre Symposium, Coastal Heritage Society Revolutionary War Lecture Series and Robert I. Strozier Faculty Lecture Series.
