  • I love what I do and feel very lucky to have this job at Santa Rosa Junior College. I have worked as a professional actor, director, and teacher throughout the Bay Area and North Bay. Acting credits include The California Shakespeare Theatre, Marin Theatre Company, TheatreWorks, and Shakespeare at Stinson. Directing credits include Word for Word, Woman’s Will, SRT, and Actors’ Theatre Santa Rosa. Recent SRJC directing credits include The Cripple of Inishmaan, Jesus Christ Superstar, It Can't Happen Here, and Twelfth Night.  In fall of 2004 I taught in London, England for SRJC’s Study Abroad Program. Spring 2012 I traveled to India for my sabbatical project on classical Indian dance theatre. I am the Chair/Artistic Director of the Department of Theatre and Fashion.
  • After a solo adventure to Buenos Aires in 2008, I became an avid Argentine Tango dancer.
