Associate Professor of Theatre Arts
Phone: (712) 722-6212
I teach courses for the Theatre Arts Department and Core Program. I specialize in teaching directing and acting, but have strong interests in applied theatre, new play development, and theatrical design.
I graduated from Seattle Pacific University with a BA in Theatre in 2000. In subsequent years I worked as an adjunct faculty member at SPU, an independent teaching artist, a construction worker, and the director of outreach for Taproot Theatre Company in Seattle Washington. I received a Master of Fine Arts degree in Directing from Baylor University in 2012.
With my diverse skill set and life experiences (I grew up as a missionary kid in Japan and have twelve adopted siblings) I discovered that I was uniquely equipped to work in the theatre. It is my privilege to teach and direct plays at Dordt College.
