Multiple Disciplines

A collection of all that I am

Though directing is now my main area of focus, I can never forget my roots in performing and other forms of creation. 

As an actor, I gravitated toward movement-based performance and have been trained in Williamson, Viewpoints, Lacoq, and Laban. I completed a year long Meisner program in Chicago and learned the Method at the Actors Studio Drama School.

I also have a varied history with comedic performance. I was a part of Scared Scriptless, Alaska's longest running improv troupe, and co-founded the Pogo Stick Go Go Dancer Company, the state's premiere live sketch comedy troupe. 

My interests and experiences are very vast so have a look below at what keeps me busy!

Beautifully Something
