Creator / Writer

I hold a Certificate in Acting from Atlantic Acting School‘s 2.5 Year Full Time Conservatory and a BA in Dance from Smith College. Further  studies include Karen Kohlhaas’ annual directing workshop in NYC.

My approach to directing is heavily influenced by my dance background and my extensive training in acting movement disciplines ranging from Suzuki/Viewpoints to Frantic Assembly’s physical devising methods.

Prior to my training as an actor, I actively choreographed for musicals, film, plays and concert dance. Now when it comes to movement, I focus more on movement direction than choreography. Rather than teaching pre-choreographed movement, the focus is on building the movement in collaboration with the performers in the room.
