Breath. Story. Song.
How do we become aware of the histories alive in our bodies?
How do we share our stories?
As an actor, teacher, voice coach and director, I investigate the expression of human experience through performance and somatic studies. I am dedicated to connecting theater and social justice and have taught Acting, Voice and Movement at the undergraduate level and in community center contexts.
Recently, I completed a teaching apprenticeship and MA in the Theater and Dance Department at the University of California Santa Barbara. At UCSB I taught undergraduate acting courses, directed and devised performances and assisted with the Launch Pad New Play Development Program and the Eugene O'Neill Review. In my scholarly writing on 20th Century theater, dance and film I explore the body as archive, actor training, somatic studies and phenomenology.
Currently, I work as an Actor, Teaching Artist and Voice Coach in New York and California. I recently had the pleasure of serving as a final selector for the 2018 Irene Ryan Acting Awards at the Region 1 Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival. I am a member of the physical theater ensemble, Cloud of Fools, and am a Linklater Teacher Trainee with The Linklater Center for Voice and Language. I am thrilled to be part of the upcoming January 2019 Linklater Voice Teacher Designation Workshop with Kristin Linklater in Orkney!
