I love working with people and studying the craft of acting. I truly enjoy teaching as well as learning from my students as we embody characters, and jump into the world of the play. Creating a character and make-believe is incredibly fun!
I earned my MFA in acting from the DePaul Theater School. SInce then I have worked with a number of theaters in Chicago including Steppenwolf, Second City, The Raven Theater, and Playmakers Laboratory.
I have appeared on Chicago PD, 61st Street, True Blood, and also have my own film company.
Most importantly, I have taught acting and creative writing to young people and high school students for over 12 years and truly enjoy it.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I love to start things off by briefly telling students a little bit about myself. How I got into the arts, my education, and other things I love to do. And then take a few minutes to find out about them. Their interest. What draws them to acting.
After that is established, I like to jump right in with some acting warmups. I truly believe acting is doing. So spending time actually doing and building the foundation of acting. I'm a big fan of taking some time to talk about technique and different teachers who have laid the groundwork for modern acting. And of course, finishing things off with homework. A fun assignment to work on and bring back for the next class.
