I am a playwright, director, actor, and theatre educator: most importantly, I am a storyteller. In 2011, I founded the Los Angeles New Court Theatre where I currently sit as President on the Board of Directors in addition to producing and directing. I have written several plays: my full-length Atlas Pit or The Garbage Man’s Son was recently produced at the Working Stage Theatre in Hollywood, CA; another one of my full-lengths El Cíclope received a reading at Samuel French Bookshop in Hollywood in June. Currently I am finishing the rough draft of my newest play, which I hope to be finished with this winter. My work is usually centered with the idea of modern-mythology; using the world of working class America textured with darkened magical realism.
In 2016 I graduated with an MFA in Performance Pedagogy from Virginia Commonwealth University. While there I designed the Directing I and II sequence in addition to creating courses in Acting for Web Content as well as Voice-Over and Radio Drama. Currently I teach acting to some of Hollywood’s most leading up-and-coming actors at Zak Barnett Studios in Los Angeles, CA.
