A brief introduction

This is my professional page at Stetson University, where I am Professor of Theatre Arts.  To prepare for teaching theatre, I earned the following degrees:
- BA in Performance: Theatre, Univ. of Alabama at Birmingham, 1982.
- MFA in Theater: Acting/Directing, So. Illinois Univ. at Carbondale, 1984.
- PhD in Theatre, Bowling Green State Univ., Bowling Green, OH, 1994.
I have been teaching at Stetson since 1994, and am also a member of the interdisciplinary Latin American Studies faculty.

Courses I teach

I regularly teach the performance courses at Stetson, including
Principles of Acting, Principles of Directing, Voice and Diction, Advanced Directing, Acting: Mask and Movement, Acting Comedy, Acting Period Style, and Acting for the Camera. I occasionally teach Arts Management, Theatre History, and Junior Seminars such as "Sticking it to the Man: Theater of Protest." Occasionally, I take students on theate trips, including this one to Miami and Mexico, sponsored through the LAS Hollis Mentored Field Experience: An International Theatre Travelogue

Professional activities

Primarily, I direct live theatre productions off campus during the summer, but I also manage to squeeze in a few acting roles for theatre, film, and television. One of my favorite places to work is the Huron Playhouse, the longest running summer theatre in Ohio.
