A professional actor, teacher, acting coach, and theatrical dialect coach - working principally in the Philadelphia area.
I am currently in the cast of Oscar Wilde's play "A Woman of No Importance" at the Walnut Street Theatre. I am acting as the production's Dialect Coach, as well - although I must say most of the cast do just fine on their own!
Recently I had a great phone interview with a reporter who is writing a book about the movie "Fargo", in which I had a small role. I talked to him about learning the Minnesota accent for that movie, which started me off on my studies in learning dialects!
I continue to teach Theater History to undergraduates
at the Ira Brind School of the University of the Arts, and also at the Theater Department of Temple University.
