I have directed a wide range of genres and styles from sketch comedy and revues to naturalistic and experimental dramas, to musicals and avant-garde operas.

I most enjoy the collaborative process and pride myself on my ability to seamlessly integrate the contributions of my fellow theater artists into the production of a cohesive theatrical piece, designed to be fulfilling for both the audience and the artists involved.
