At home both in the spotlight and behind the scenes, I have been a director, actor, dramaturg, and acting coach for over 25 years in the New York/New Jersey area and beyond. I am a proud associate member of SSDC. As a freelance stage director my credits include such shows as Hamlet, Kiss Me Kate, The Lion in Winter, Fiddler on the Roof, Blithe Spirit, South Pacific, On Golden Pond, The Passion of Dracula, Rumors, and Cabaret. For over 15 years I have worked extensively as director and dramaturg in close collaboration with playwrights and composers in the development of new plays and musicals, directing stage readings, workshops, showcases and premieres of such shows as A World I Never Made, Belles of the Mill, Homing Penguins, and The Understanding. Pursuing a life-long passion for Shakespeare, I have studied at The University of Cambridge and Shakespeare Institute in Stratford-upon-Avon, UK.
