Thank you for visiting my site!

I am a freelance theatre director, actor, and educator currently serving as the Executive Director for The Moving Company in Minneapolis, MN. I believe strongly in the power of theatre to teach empathy, compassion, vulnerability and collaboration.

I am especially interested in the collaborative nature of theatre; I have often worked on new works and am also interested in devised theatre. This passion for collaboration was a focus of my studies at the University of North Dakota; in my Master's thesis, I explored methods of directing and teaching which emphasize collaboration and empowering young actors. 

Please explore this site and get to know me better as an actor, director and educator!
