I have been directing for about 20 years, and still have a lot to learn. I hold an MFA from Mary Baldwin College/American Shakespeare Center, so my work is heavily influenced by their focus on audience connection. I’m the co-author, with Tony Malone, of the forthcoming Cutting Plays for Performance, coming out from Routledge Press in early 2022.
My favorite directing credits include Sperm Donor Wanted (2020) with Slow Your Role Theater Co., Romeo and Juliet (2012), The Duchess of Malfi (2016), Antony and Cleopatra (2018), and Richard III (2019) with Pigeon Creek Shakespeare, The Winter’s Tale (2013) at Bridgewater College, Noye’s Fludde (2014) at Eastern Mennonite High School, and JB (2011) at Eastern Mennonite University.
I am a frequent adjunct instructor at Eastern Mennonite University, James Madison University, and Bridgewater College, teaching theater history and speech. I also am a regular respondent for the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (Region II), and serve on the board for KCACTF-Region II, as the workshops coordinator. I’m the co-author, with Toby Malone, of a forthcoming book from Routledge Press on cutting plays for performance (title TBD).
When I’m not in a theater, I work as a freelance software developer.
