I am a working, professional MFA Theatre actor who has been fortunate to have worked some of theatre's finest and most respected teachers of their crafts. Among them: Paul Meier, Kari Margolis, Robbie McCauley, Marsha Estell, Kira Obolensky, Folabo Soyina-Ajayi, Steve Scott, Kestutis Nakas, Marsha Paludin (deceased), and Andrew Tsubaki (deceased).
I have performed at these highly respected regional theatres: Penumbra Theatre company, Imaginary Theatre Company (part of the St. Louis Repertory Theatre), Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, Ordway Performing Arts Center, among others. And have the experience of a 9-month international theatre tour (Buddy, the Buddy Holly Story). I have worked on productions where not only were we actors, we were also the live musical accompaniment! Please see my resume for more credentials.
I invite you to come see my work. I promise you won't be disappointed.
I act both on stage and screen. I am also available for voice over and commercial/industrial projects.
I offer group audition classes, private acting lessons, and am also available as an acting consultant on your productions. Audition classes consist of helping the beginning or less experienced actor with proper selection of audition materials along with first-hand knowledge of how the audition process works, therefore practical, relevant, and current information. Private lessons start with an evaluation of one's acting technique and consists of work to fill in performance gaps. Consulting consists of watching rehearsals, and helping your actors get the most out of their script and make interesting choices, all keeping consistent with the world of the play. Look soon for scene study classes geared toward more experienced actors.
I relocated to Kansas to help with my 92-year old mum. She's well, thank you, and gracefully aging - showing me how it's done! Establishing myself in the Kansas City theatrical and commercial market. Work is appreciated!
