I have taught classes and workshops for several companies in Portland, including the Northwest Children’s Theater and Staged!  I co-directed the debut production “If” for Oregon Children’s Theatre and Kaiser Permanente’s Educational Theatre Program in 2007.

Drama instructor for Alliance Charter Academy in Oregon City, OR. since 2010  

West Sylvan Drama

In 2006 I took a freelance job as a guest director for West Sylvan middle school and before I knew it I was the director of the after-school drama program at West Sylvan until Winter of 2013.  I am very grateful to have  been part of a thriving program with healthy community support.  The Performing Arts Academy at West Sylvan produces two shows every school year including the fall musical which has more than 100 volunteers who help bring it to the stage.  The students at West Sylvan have created top-notch productions of Grease, Godspell, Oliver!, Little Shop of Horrors, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Guys & Dolls, Midsummer Night's Dream, School House Rock Live!, Annie, The Little Mermaid, Hamlet and Romeo & Juliet.
