I have been directing and coaching actors for 8 years. I love being on the other side of the table and have a lot of experience doing it.
I've worked with the Francisco Shakespeare Festival and California Shakespeare theater as both an actor and teaching artist. Bring your Romeos and Ophelias, I can handle all that classical text!
I am an active indie filmmaker and am available to lend my perspective or just my voice for whatever script you're working with.
I also have experience in French and Romanian, so if you have to work with something in either of those languages, I'm your reader!
