Teaching Artist

Currently: George Street Playhouse, McCarter Theatre Center, bergenPAC, Montclair State University, The Art School at Old Church, Aspire Performing Arts

As a Teaching Artist, I have worked on both the east and west coasts with ages 3 to 18. I am passionate about utilizing theatre education to help students find their voices and self-confidence while building effective communication and collaboration skills.

I have taught a variety of classes specifically focused on building theatrical skills. Some classes have included play creation, devising, musical theatre, improvisation, and scene study. Combining my teaching artist and directorial work I have also directed a variety of fully produced productions for ages 9 to 14.  Additionally, I teach in-school residencies focused on teaching New Jersey curriculum in a theatrical manner, which culminate in a student devised sharing.

Teaching resume and example curriculum or lesson planning available upon request.
