Director, Author, Consultant, Educator

 I'm a New York based theater practitioner who has directed in NYC, regional, international and educational theatre for many years.  As an educator, I  developed and supervised the BFA Acting Program at Brooklyn College, CUNY and in 2018 I received the Oscar Brockett Excellence in Teaching Theatre in Higher Education Award from the Association for Theater in Higher Education - currently, I coach and teach privately, and consult for organizations such as Atlantic Theater Company, Fordham and CNY Arts.


These days...

I send all my love and wishes for good health to everyone, especially to those in the hard-hit theatre community. Keep reaching out to one another, have faith in the ancient and eternal reasons that theatre has always, and will always thrive: to share stories and humanity, and to help people feel less alone.
