Actor, Fight and Intimacy Director, Storyteller
Current and Upcoming Projects
Teenage Dick (Seattle Repertory Theatre) and Big Love (Seattle Pacific University)
Straight from choreographing a classic fairy tale with an epic battle between a hero and villain, and a madcap farce full of slaps, falls, and door slams this January, I am jumping into my first show at the Seattle Repertory Theatre. Teenage Dick is a satirical comedy about disability and high school bullying. I'm also very excited for Big Love, my first college production since college!
Intimacy Direction: Hotter Than Egypt (ACT Theatre/Marin Theatre), Ghosts (Seattle Rep) and Gaslight (Sound Theatre Company)
As part of a year long collaboration between ACT Theatre and PNW Theatrical Intimacy, I was the intimacy director for the world premiere of Yussef El Guindi's play Hotter Than Egypt. ACT Theatre is exploring a new model of intimacy direction by hiring members of the PNW Theatrical Intimacy collective, an organization I co-founded last year with other regional intimacy directors. The show has transferred down to Marin Theatre in California, but my intimacy direction can be seen in the Seattle Rep's new adaptation of Ghosts and the thriller Gaslight open in Seattle in April.
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.
I am teaching stage combat at Seattle Pacific University for spring quarter. I'm looking forward to a dynamic 10 weeks of unarmed combat!
