Currently, I teach Middle School Theater in CT. Recently I taught High school theater in CT and Elementary theater in NYC As a facilitator I've co-development PD sessions for the Department of Education of New York City centered around the topic ‘How to Teach Playwriting’ to fellow theater teachers. In 2012 I also facilitated a workshop for students in the Masters in Educational Theater program at City College of New York. In Summer 2011 I presented at The American Alliance for Theatre and Education’s national convention in Chicago. The panel on which I will be presenting on was - Know Thyself: Adolescent Social Identity Personality and Perspective Through Encountering Performance and Playbuilding. My research specifically centered on the experience of eight urban high school students writing their first script and the effects that learning to write a script have on youth. I have a background as a director, writer, actor and producer in NYC.
My style is more facilitator and demonstrator than anything else.
