About me

In 2005, I directed The Rover, The Diary of Anne Frank, The Misanthrope, Taming of the Shrew, Julius Caesar, The Eight: Reindeer Monologues, and Macbeth (Shrew and Caesar were both very short versions with teenagers at SF Shakes). I’m starting 2006 by directing Julius Caesar again. Then I’ll have a month or so to catch my breath before rehearsals begin for Hamlet. Also, I teach acting at UC Riverside and Cal State Long Beach, and theatre history at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

Previously, I’ve taught at South Coast Rep, the American Conservatory Theatre, Cal Shakes, and several other programs in the Bay Area, Seattle, and southern California. I’ve directed at The Magic in San Francisco, and I was the founding Artistic Director of Impact Theatre in Berkeley. Impact’s mission — making plays that rock the world of all our friends who think theatre has nothing to offer them — is still my own as well.

My training includes an MFA in Directing from the University of Washington, Seattle, and a BFA in Theatre from Boston University. I was a participant in the 2004 Director’s Lab West.

    Stumbled across your excellent blog while trying to find the fancy word for ‘feminine ending’–I can never remember it.

    At any rate, I sensed a kindred spirit in your mission-driven journey. In my semi-retirement from film and television, I have continued a somewhat similarly quixotic quest as regards the preservation and popularization of Shakespeare’s magnificent legacy.

    Keep up the good work.
