I joined the Boston Conservatory at Berkeley in 2016 and am an acting instructor with sophomore Contemporary Theatre students, a producer and facilitator of a joint devised project with Double Edge Theatre, and will be directing a devised project with Freshman Contemporary Theatre students in spring 2017. I also work as an acting instructor at Walnut Hill School for The Arts in Natick, MA, where I have also recently directed a production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Prior to joining the Conservatory, I enjoyed a career as an educator and professional actor with various other educational institutions and theaters. Back in the early 2000s I toured Europe with my theater company, Without Gas, performing in adaptations of avant-garde Eastern European dramas in England, Poland, and Slovakia. I’ve also performed with the Utah Shakespearean Festival, the Shakespeare Theatre Company, Folger Shakespeare, Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse, Theater J, Everyman Theatre, Baltimore Shakespeare Festival, Imagination Stage, Taffety Punk Theatre Company, and Constellation Theatre Company, among others. I’ve also acted in various commercials and industrial films for the likes of the hospitality industry, the TSA, and the United States armed forces. In almost all of these I played a nondescript Eastern European terrorist for some reason or another. I also made an appearance on the television series House of Cards where you can see me pulling off my best smirks and stares at other cast members. I’ve taught at highly regarded institutions such as Southern Methodist University, Towson University, George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology, Commonwealth Shakespeare Company, and the Winsor School, among others. I also helped develop and directed Mulatto Child, a one-man show starring artist Paul Diem, which was performed at the Chicago Fringe Festival.
