Who Can I Be Now?

Originally from Kentucky, I've worked as a performer throughout the country with Actors Theatre of Louisville, Chautauqua Theatre Company, The Cherry, Kentucky Shakespeare Festival, The Schoolhouse Theater, The Players Theatre, Ithaca Shakespeare Company, Theatre (502), and The Thread Collective. I've also toured nationally as part of Heading Into Night, a clown ode on…forgetting with Daniel Passer (Cirque du Soleil), directed by Beth Milles (Broadway, The Actors Gang). In film and television, I appeared in Men Go To Battle (Tribeca Film Festival Best New Feature Director) and will appear in the pilot episode of Born 2 Lose directed by Carlos Cardona. I have also appeared in a variety of short films, web series, and other multi-media projects.


As a director, I've worked with The Schoolhouse Theater, On the Verge, The Cherry Artspace, Ithaca Theatre Collective, Floyd Central Theatre Arts, and Strange Players. I have served as assistant director to Austin Pendleton, Seret Scott, Owen Thompson, and Friday Anderson. I recently co-founded BURN1, a production collective based in New York City.

I am also a writer and dramaturg. My essay “Taming Desire: Streetcar on Film” was published in Zoetic Literary Magazine, and I served as  lead editor for the forthcoming book Beyond the Studio, a Conversation about Acting by three-time Fulbright Scholar Cynthia Henderson. Additionally, my theatrical work has been given developmental workshops with The Schoolhouse Theater.

 

I am a graduate of Ithaca College’s BFA in Acting Program (where I also received a BA in Literatures of English), and an alumnus of Chautauqua Theatre Company’s Summer Program. Post graduation, I've trained with Christopher Bayes, Jess Cummings, Peter Francis James, Seth Barrish, Budi Miller, Steve Broadnax III, Ryan Quinn, Tia James, and many other wonderful teachers and mentors.
