Hi, thanks for visiting my website.
I am a Theatre Director and Dialect Coach for theatre and film with experience in coaching actors in a wide array of accents from Irish and Australian to Boston to Hungarian. I’m interested in how actors learn and in developing a coaching style that works for the particular actor I’m working with. I’m also a voice teacher for actors so, depending on production needs, I’m also frequently working with actors on vocal delivery as well as dialect.
I’m a member of the Voice and Speech Trainers Association (VASTA) and also of the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society (SDC)
We are just moving into fall, which is truly beautiful in this part of Utah and I have a new dog! Oh yes and professionally; I am gearing up for auditions for How to Transcend a Happy Marriage by Sarah Ruhl, which I will be directing for the Salt Lake Acting Company in the spring of 2020.
And plans are afoot for the 2020 season of the Lyric Repertory Company where I serve as Artistic Producer. It’s a season which includes Brighton Beach Memoirs, All Shook Up and the Utah premieres of Hudson: A Historical Musical and The Thanksgiving Play.
