Teaching Artist 

I develop and teach various acting and theater curriculums, from Shakespeare to Improvisation to Devised Theater.


I recently enjoyed teaching with ACT's Young Conservatory program, leading the classes On-Camera Acting I and II at the middle school level.


In-school theatre arts residencies have included Richmond College Prep, Claire Lillinthal, George Peabody, Gordon Lau, and Venetia Valley.


I toured middle and high schools with NCTC’s “OutSpoken”, a play about teens and identity, facilitating talkbacks and learning moments for young audiences across the Bay Area.

I also teach summer Shakespeare intensives with Marin Shakespeare Company, and am available for private audition coaching.

When not performing myself, my passion is helping others hone their craft.
