Bio

I started my professional career as an actor and after several years I realized that food, clothing, and shelter were all life necessities. I began my teaching career in 5th grade and was then given the opportunity to create a theatre curriculum for the Westport Middle Schools. I currently serve as the middle school theatre arts curriculum leader for the Westport Public Schools and the Artistic Director of Coleytown Company. In addition I direct regularly at Curtain Call in Stamford, CT and occassionally still do an acting job.
