Taproot Theatre's production of The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberley is a joyful yet thoughtful romp with some of Jane Austen's most beloved characters. Christmas with the Bennets is already challenging, but when the dastardly Wickham shows up (yours truly), things get even more complicated. Come enjoy a cozy and comical two hours of Christmas a la Austen.


The 39 Steps 

(Seattle Pacific University)

February 2-11, 2023

I am beyond excited to be directing the madcap comedy The 39 Steps for Seattle Pacific University. This joyful celebration of theatre plays to all my strengths and loves as an artist: big characters, constant physicality, combat and intimacy, and so many jokes. I can't wait to share it with you.

Fight and Intimacy Direction: Sweeney Todd 

(5th Avenue Theatre)

April 28-May 14

There are few musicals I enjoy more than Sweeney Todd, so the choice to rejoin my friend and fabulous director Jay Woods for the 5th's upcoming production was a no-brainer. The entire piece is infused with violence and intimacy so I have been brought on early in a design capacity. I applaud the 5th for taking seriously the need for a fight/intimacy director to be present in pre-production and in the rehearsal room every day. After collaborating with Jay on Beauty and the Beast, I know we'll be able to make even more magic with the inventive and intense story of Sweeney Todd.


Game Mastering


Besides running D&D for a close group of friends and working privately for hire, I am thrilled to be working with Katie Lear, a child therapist, and using D&D for social emotional learning and therapy.
