I WILL BE FRANK WITH YOU Actor, Director, Playwright and Teaching Artist
I am an artist of many hyphenates. My experiences in each art form has given me a deeper breath of undertstanding in my work. As an actor, I have appeared in numerous stage plays, television productions, corporate shows, and films.
When not acting in other people's projects, I enjoy creating my own. I am the writer/performer of the critically-acclaimed Off-Broadway one-man play Blood Type: RAGU. For the past ten years, I have been touring the show nationally and internationally allowing me to meet and share my story while connecting with other people's stories. Presently, I am workshoping a new solo show entitled, Senior Moments.
I have also directed many stage plays, cabarets, corporate shows, high school and college theatre productions.
As a Teaching Artist I have worked with students of all ages and diverse populations. Some of my favorite projects have been designing arts education residencies integrating theatre as a tool to teach across the curriculum. I have also conducted memoir writing workhshops with mature populations, monologue audition coaching for college students applying to theatre programs, and using the art of improvisation as a positive tool of expression for incarcerated adults.
