Narrative: I am proud to share my enthusiasm and love of theatre along with my experience in stagecraft, design and special effects. My teaching philosophy is simple - you can never stop learning and exploring. Through the support of my academic and professional colleagues and of course my students, I am learning to become a better teacher and leader by exploring new teaching methods and techniques, improving my theatre design skills and instilling my positive spirit and energy into each new project.
Service: I volunteer my professional services to local theatres, schools and churches. I also dedicate time to the St Louis Franciscan Connection, an urban service agency.
