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 PlayShakespeare’s Twelfth NightFools 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, and was the Associate Director on TheatreVCU’s production of The Rocky Horror Show.

Most recently I 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.

When not directing, I function as a producer and director consultant for artists at the LANCT.  Past producing credits include: This is Our YouthA Piece of My Heart, and Speech & Debate.
