Research Interests

I am a certified teacher of Alexander Technique – which is a mind/body approach to movement. I have also coordinated a nationaly known stage combat workshop.

Teaching Interests

Combining the skills actors and theatre professionals use to create meaningful events both on and off the stage.

Professional Activity

Actor in a staged reading of a new 1-act play “Tangled Mess” by Steve Peirick at Heartland Theatre, Summer 2013

I was a member of the planning committee for the Annual Conference of Alexander Technique teachers in Chicago (August 2013). I was selected to compile two presentations honoring master teachers of the Technique and their connection to Chicago. The Alexander Technique is a mind/body approach to movement. I am a certified teacher, which required 1600 hours of training.


I enjoy working with students as they grasp the opportunities available through Eureka College.
