Throughout my career I have maintained a balance between my academic appointments and my artistic endeavors. I have directed numerous plays within a wide range of style and genre. However, a good portion of what produce often focuses on original play development and devised theatre projects. It is from this experience in the creation and development of new plays where I have found my greatest joy and fulfillment as an artist. Over the years I have fine-tuned a methodology by which original work is created through a shared ensemble approach and/or through a literary collaboration.
