Teaching has brought me many joys. I have taught improv at the Larry Moss Studios aka Acting Studios at Edgemar, privately for groups including HotProv, and internationally with my favorite location being The Miranda Davidson Studios in Dubai. (See Photo on Left)
I also teach sketch writing and am the Co-Director of the Top Story! Weekly Conservatory. Like our page on Facebook to find out when our next session starts.
And my most recent career move has been producing films, it began with The Touch but most recently I produced Freshwater, a horror film set to arrive October 2014.
I have had the opportunity to play a lead role in Films alongside some amazing talent including Ed Asner, Olivia Munn, Keith David, Zoë Bell, Joe Lando, and Tiny Lister. Some of these films include The Touch, Hopelessly in June, and most recently Freshwater. And least I forget the single greatest guest starring role on Operation Repo… if you missed it, I feel bad for you.
Writing has become a passion and I have written a Comedy short film, The Touch, with John Bobek and our film won Audience Favorite award at the only Festival in which it was submitted. The feature film with the same name was optioned by a production company. While they never produced it, it is now in Pre-Production with our own company signed on to produce.
Additionally I have a script for a thriller called, Random, which was recently described by one production company as "definitely a popcorn blockbuster with potential" "calls to mind classic suspense films of the past like Peeping Tom," and a television pilot, Vendors, with Artemis Pebdani and Emo Phillips attached.
I first stepped onto a stage as a 7 year old in the role of a Munchkin in The Wizard of Oz. That was the day I knew I wanted to be an entertainer. Since then I have performed on stages throughout Chicago, Milwaukee, Los Angeles, and Orange County including Improv Olympic, Second City, ComedySportz, IO West, Edgemar Center for the Arts, Second City Hollywood, and iO West.
Since it's inception I have been a writer and actor in Top Story! Weekly the sketch comedy show that is the three time Del Close Award winner for Best Scripted Show and named by KCBS "Best of LA".
