Greetings!

I began my teaching career at a middle school in my home state of Washington in the United States, taught theatre at several US universities for a decade, and then came to Shenzhen, China to teach drama at an international school. I’m now enjoying teaching students English courses at Beijing Normal University, Zhuhai. The study of drama and theatre is a passion of mine. I believe students can learn much from drama regardless of whether they aim to pursue an arts-related career. Through studying drama and culture, students enhance their public speaking and collaboration skills, learn social poise, and become better equipped to contribute to intellectual discussions.

I earned my doctorate in Theatre and Performance of the Americas from Arizona State University and hold a Master of Arts degree in Theatre Studies from Ohio State University. Twentieth and twenty-first century US Theatre and popular performance are two of my areas of specialization. I am a theatre director and dramaturg. As a dramaturg I curate educational programming to offer theatre spectators additional ways to engage with theatrical performances. As a production dramaturg for mainstage shows at Phoenix Theatre, La Jolla Playhouse, and several universities, I have shared my knowledge of dramatic structure and theatre history to aid directors and actors during the rehearsal process. I try to serve a similar goal in the classroom where I use my knowledge of theatre and performance to further inspire students’ interest in the curriculum.

I have also had the good fortune to advise emerging and veteran playwrights as they develop their new plays and musicals at the Kennedy Center MFA Playwrights Workshop, and Phoenix Theatre’s Festival of New Plays and Musicals. For the Dallas based Kitchen Dog Theater I continue to review scripts submitted by playwrights hopeful their play will be selected for KDT’s upcoming new play festival.

Beyond my work in the theatre I have also continued to research and write, eager to share my findings with others. My published work in theatre and performance studies can be found in two anthologies and in Theatre Journal, Text & Performance Quarterly, and the Journal of Dramatic Theory and Criticism.
