FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to first have them share any old monologues they have worked on in the past. If they are new to the performance world, we'll play some games/do some warm-ups so I can gage where they are at and then move forward from there.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

My dad owns comedy clubs, so it's in my bones from when I was a toddler on. 

I've been performing in front of audiences since I was three.

I have my bachelors degree in Theatre Performance from the University of Missouri: Kansas City.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

When I was in India, I had to learn how to teach physical theatre without using language-- cause few of us had a common one to share, besides that of the heart, emotion and physicality! It was incredible how well we came to understand each other and transform the spaces we were in with our creative process!
