I am a flexible, quick-thinking, and dependable producer and developer of content for both stage and film. My entertainment career began over 20 years ago performing improvisation and sketch comedy. I continue to train in improvisation, acting, and writing.
As a producer I have created two short films and a music video, which are posted here. I have also produced or co-produced stage shows such as Bedlam Explosivo Variety show, Free Monty Python (a burlesque/variety show), and The MUTES Present The Way Wayback Machine (sketch).
Currently, I am actively seeking to shoot my next silent short, as well as in the process of staging a cabaret-style script.
Along with having written the above-mentioned short films and stage plays, I have a number of feature-length screenplays in various stages of development. I have also written nearly 50 songs, primarily on guitar.
On the performance side, I have acted lead and supporting in comedies and dramas, and am comfortable with both improvised and scripted productions. I have also performed as a musician (solo and duet) and in burlesque.
I have most recently trained with Impro Theater/LA Theatersports and am a member of Victory Variety Hour, one of the premiere Burlesque troupes in Los Angeles.
