Here is the Rundown:
I am gravitated towards strong ensemble pieces, and sculpt performances with focused actor coaching and composition. With strength in conception, my plays display a window into simple yet beautiful character driven worlds, spiked with style and color. My recent work has been exploring with the techniques of deconstruction.
Past directing credits include It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play, Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, Fools by Neil Simon, Tales from the Red Rose Inn by Don Nigro, and All Cotton by Shel Silverstein. I also assistant directed with Richmond Triangle Players on their production of Noel Coward’s Design for Living, was the Associate Director on TheatreVCU’s production of The Rocky Horror Show, and directed a staged reading of William Hoffman’s celebrated play As Is for an HIV/AIDS Awareness staged reading series associated with VCU’s Humanities Research Center.
Upcoming projects include Guillermo Calderon’s KISS at Beloit College, and the world premiere of There’s No Place… at the Janesville Performing Arts Center.
When not directing, I function as a producer and director consultant for artists at the Los Angeles New Court Theatre, which I founded in 2011. Past producing credits include: This is Our Youth, A Piece of My Heart, and Speech & Debate. Our company has come quite some ways since our beginnings, and have premiered the work of notable playwrights including Bekah Bruntetter (Little Man, World Premiere), Jess Shoemaker (Jason & Medea, West Coast Premiere), and Celine Song (The Feast, Los Angeles Premiere).
If you’d like to inquire about a future project, it’s best to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Give me the lowdown and I’ll give you mine.
