I am an independent artist who is passionate about theatre as a force of community engagement and social change. Theatre should educate, inspire, and move us to action.  Successful art should also offer hope and bolster faith.

I tend to be nomadic, geographically and stylistically.  This means I may be found to wandering the globe creating a wide range of performance art including everything from physical theatre to Shakespeare– from clowning to Inge.

See what people are saying about my performances here.

I am also a Founder and the Co-Artistic Director of Forge Repertory Theatre in Kansas City, MO.  We believe in Open Theatre– our shows are accessible to all regardless of financial barriers; our shows feature a repertory of emerging artists working along side established artist mentors; and our budgets are an open book in which we allow all to see our process and goals for paying all artists a living wage!


I am also a teaching artist.

I run Single Digit Theatre, an educational exploration for very young children (ages 5-8), which implements my Interactive Storytelling techniques.

Older children (ages 9-16) can experience Playmaking, a groundbreaking theatre program based on New York’s 52nd Street Project which focuses on guiding students through play creation and production. Students develop their creativity and self-esteem through a painless and supportive group environment. Playmaking culminates in performances of students’ plays by professional actors and directors (and sometimes students!)

Not a kiddo? Don’t worry: I also offer physical theatre, acting, and movement workshops for all ages.  I may even be found teaching courses at your local college/university or theatre.
