Why I Teach

I wish to guide and inspire my students to discover their own strengths and unique voices in theater and in the world. I believe the most effective teaching happens when students are challenged to think creatively and to accomplish goals beyond their comfort levels. 

I am committed to sharing my many years of professional experience with them. This offers a valuable perspective on what skills and thought processes are most productive in the business arena.
