TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I most recently was high school head of Creative Arts and classroom teacher in Sydney, Australia for 4 years. Before this, I taught middle- and high school-level Drama and Visual Arts in the US for 5+ years to complement my professional work as a theatre artist. Additionally, I taught university-level English in South Korea for one year. In the past 12+ years I have led various masterclasses and done private tutoring for acting and public speaking, and have been a professional actor, director, artist, and writer in the US and abroad for 20+ years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I prefer to call myself a coach rather than a teacher. Thanks to technology and communication, students today have greater access to information than at any other time in history. Because of this, a teacher's role must shift to that of facilitator and guide rather than sole transmitter of information, aiding students in the competent use of information and skills as well as metacognition. Coaching in this way seeks to help students understand their own learning processes and how to apply knowledge and skills to life in a beneficial way. I believe the highest goal for a teacher is to make themselves redundant, having taught their students to be self-reliant and an able judge of their own work at a given level. We know that there is no fixed ceiling to one's knowledge and skills, and that an individual can continue to grow until that individual becomes the best in the world at what they do... at which point they must become more clever about where their learning comes from.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My students over the years have honored me best.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I hold an MFA in Acting from the Professional Theatre Training Program at the University of Delaware, a BFA in Studio Art from Wheaton College (IL), and a Graduate Diploma of Secondary Education from the Wesley Institute (Sydney, Australia).

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am an avid soccer player and mountain biker. I enjoy burritos and sushi, on separate occasions. I work as a freelance artist, and am a writer and voice actor at times. I end up performing in theatre about once a year or so these days. I enjoy keeping up with the world as it has been and will be. I am currently bettering myself at programming and game design, as these areas will continue to expand their role in our future. I studied classical acting from a graduate program that focuses on language-based theatre and rhetoric because of my love for words powerfully spoken and a concern for the loss of that ability in our culture today. I also trust projections on future markets, which predict that around 30% of the world's jobs in the next 50 years will be in the creative industries (just think of iPhone app development, gamification, online content, video, animation, and what possibilities technology will continue to bring us). I seek to teach students to be better prepared for the world ahead, as I hope to be myself.
