I have worked as a workshop instructor, guest director, and sometimes guest performer literally throughout the world. Though I still have yet to work in South America or Antarctica, so companies and festivals from those areas wishing to hire me will receive special attention.
I pride myself on the ability to create exercises and workshops specifically for the needs and interests of troupes and individuals, and am adept at encouraging organic, improvisational creation through the application of structure and form.
More information on impro workshops below.
To see my non-teaching/directing improvisation performing credits, please look here.
I have also coached individuals in audition prep, monologues, and stage presence.
