About Me

I’ve spent my life in the study and practice of acting. I began working professionally at 17,
and have since been lucky enough to work in NYC with theaters such as Roundabout, Classic
Stage, and the Signature Theatre; and in Vermont with BCA, Vermont Stage, Vermont
Symphony Orchestra, Full Circle Cooperative, and Middlebury Acting Co. I got my BFA in
acting from UNM, trained at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Hollywood, and
earned my MFA in acting at Columbia University, where I was lucky enough to be in the last
group taught there by Kristin Linklater. I’m in the final months of my years long journey to
become a Designated Teacher of the Linklater Voice technique. Linklater is practiced and
taught in programs around the world, including Yale, NYU, UCSD, Columbia, The Royal
Central School of Speech and Drama, and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art –
as well as being practiced by performers like Hugh Jackman, Sam Rockwell, Sir Patrick
Stewart, Bernadette Peters, Bill Murray, and Sigourney Weaver.

I believe a performer’s job is to investigate themselves intimately and use what they find to
electrify the story they are a part of telling. I use a holistic approach to acting that relies on
enlivening the actor’s mind/body/feelings/imagination/self to be supple, reactive, &
changeable. If you bring a grounded, spontaneous, feeling self to Stanislavski’s game of
living truthfully in imaginary circumstances, you will never leave your audience disappointed.
