A professional actor, teacher, acting coach, and theatrical dialect coach - working principally in the Philadelphia area.

In early 2020 I will be joining the cast of Oscar Wilde's play "A Woman of No Importance" at the Walnut Street Theatre.

Recent projects as Dialect Coach included developing the Italian, Midwestern, and Texas accents for the cast of the musical "Bridges of Madison County" at the Philadelphia Theatre Company.


I have also worked individually with many local actors as a private coach. Recent dialects I have worked on with these students include German, North Carolina, French, Irish, and Russian accents. I also taught a four-week course this summer at the Walnut Street Theatre on a Standard English Dialect for the working theater artist.

I continue to teach Theater History to undergraduates 

at the Ira Brind School of the University of the Arts. And I also teach undergraduate courses in writing, dramaturgical research, and History in the Theater Department at Temple University.

I will post updates and news items here as often as I can. See "Contact" if you'd like to get in touch with me.
