Profile

I have been teaching Theatre Performance classes at Seton Hall University since 1992. I direct two main-stage productions a year and direct professionally with the Women's Theatre Company and at the Bickford Theatre. I am a member of the Equity company, The Yates Musical Theatre for Children, and on the Board of Directors for the Celtic Theatre Company. I am also the advisor to the Theatre Council, the SGA organization for theatre students. Since 2004 I have been taking students to England to experience theatre in London and to explore Shakespeare's birthplace. We also visit Stonehenge, Bath and Oxford.
