Welcome!

I am a director, actor, writer and assistant professor of theatre at University of Wisconsin - La Crosse.  I have also taught at Hamilton College, St. Olaf College, Macalester College and the University of Minnesota (Twin Cities). As a director, I like to explore different methods of creating work, whether working from a script or devising with cast members.  While I have been concentrating, since 2006, on both directing and teaching, I worked as an actor in New York City and had graduated from the American Repertory Theatre's Institute for Advanced Theatre Training at Harvard University in 1992.  I received both my M.A. and Ph.D. in Dramatic Theory and History from the University of Minnesota and a B.A. in Liberal Arts from Sarah Lawrence College.
