Teaches: Acting II 

Teaching Philosophy: To study acting is to become a scientist of the human condition. Our studio is a laboratory where we experiment with bravery, investigate risk, and discover just how vulnerable we can be. We use trial and curiosity to fail and fail better. To that end, I firmly believe we can best fail, i.e., learn, when we are invested in the collective support and success of our learning community. Using breath and play, we navigate our way through text, character, and connection.
