Actor • Narrator • Improviser • Teacher

I'm an award-winning LA-based actor, improviser and improv teacher, audiobook narrator, and voiceover artist.

 

Acting

I've appeared on TV in Criminal Minds and Marvel's Agent Carter, in several feature films, notably as a zombie George Washington in the horror/comedy Presidents Day, and in over a dozen national commercials. I've performed in plays in LA including at Theatre of NOTE, Sacred Fools Theatre, Son of Semele, and with Mister & Mischief's Escape from Godot, as well as in regional theatres.

Improv and Teaching

I've been a main company performer with ComedySportz LA since 2003, and was Director of Education and Rec League Director from 2015-2021. I've performed around LA as a member of the Impro Theatre Lab Ensemble, in the improvised HG Wells show Fantastic Tales, and as half of the two-person show One-Person Show, as well as throughout the US as a guest of a bunch of great improv theatres and companies. Prior to moving to LA, I was Associate Artistic Director and a founding player at ComedySportz Spokane. I've also taught improv all around the US, specializing in improvised Shakespeare, creating emotional relationships, and making exciting story choices. I've taught every age level, from pre-school to seniors, classes of autistic students, religious groups, corporations, civic departments, even actors.

Voiceover and Audiobooks

I'm a co-creator and cast member of Sonder: The Improvised Podcast. I also provided voice talent to the podcast Going Reno, and I'm in the cast of the English dubbing for Wrong Side of the Tracks, Unauthorized Living, Undercover, Osmosis, and Wolf, all of which are on Netflix. I'm also an active audiobook narrator, with seven titles to my name and counting.

 

I graduated magna cum laude from Gonzaga University, majoring in Theatre Arts, History, and German, and minoring in Philosophy. I also studied master classes in Acting and Directing Shakespeare at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London and with the RSC in Stratford-upon-Avon.
