I'm a Teacher, Actor, Musician, Director, Voice Over Artist, and hobby junkie. 

Based in North Carolina, I'm an Assistant Professor of Theatre at Brevard College in beautiful Brevard, North Carolina.

Arts Educator

From Stage Combat to Music Direction, Shakespeare to devised work, my focus is in bringing top-quality arts education to communities throughout the country that would otherwise have limited access, and to guide students to a whole new level of self-expression they weren't aware they had.

As a performer, I've been seen regionally from Chicago to Montana, Cape Cod to Virginia and many places between. 

A graduate of Interlochen Arts Academy, The Hartt School, and UNC Chapel Hill's Professional Actor Training Program (PATP) I've spent the better part of two decades developing curiosity and community through the Fine Arts.

BC Theatre Presents: The Spitfire Grill

November 16 - 19, 2023

Join the students of Brevard College as they bring us the beautifully folk-inflected musical adaptation of the classic 1996 Film written by Lee David Zlotoff.


With Book and Lyrics by James Valcq and Fred Alley, Percy, upon being released from prison, goes to the small town of Gillead, to find a place where she can start over again. She is taken in by Hannah, to help out at her place, the Spitfire Grill. Percy brings change to the small town, stirring resentment and fear in some, and growth in others.

April 13 - 16, 2023

Jeff & Hunter make a pact: They will write an original musical and submit it to a festival. The only catch? The deadline is in three weeks! 


In this intelligent, playful, lovable musical, the audience is treated to an inside look at the tough work of being a creative artist. Frequently hilarious, occasionally heartbreaking, and thoroughly inspiring, [title of show] is a love story celebrating individuality and creativity.

Come see Brevard College Theatre's latest musical offering, the dazzling ensemble piece [title of show], directed by yours truly! Get your tickets here!


A Christmas Carol -  Adapted by William Leach

December 2nd and 3rd, 2022. 

Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol has never had a more timely or urgent message for communities today, so join me as I present the Holiday favorite in a whole new way: Solo! 

In this adaptation by William Leach, Scrooge, Cratchit, Tiny Tim and all the rest, are in one body presented in a comfortable, intimate setting to get you and the family in the Christmas Spirit, and perhaps reflect on how we've been a "Scrooge" in our own life. 

The World Over
November 17 - 20, 2022

My directorial debut, The World Over is a sweeping adventure tale infused with puppetry, music and physical story-telling. Staged to bring the community into a space of playful reflection, our students were highly praised, receiving nominations in acting and design from our adjudicators from KCACTF.
