Welcome to my professional website. I am Professor of Acting/Directing in the Department of Theatre and Dance at the State University of New York at Fredonia. I have been at Fredonia since 1988. Prior to that I taught at Genesee Community College in Batavia NY, and Southeast Community College-Fairbury in Fairbury NE. I hold an MFA in Acting from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and a BA in Theatre and English from SUNY Oswego. At SUNY Fredonia I’ve held such positions as Director of the Media Arts Program, Chair of the Department of Visual Arts and New Media, and Interim Dean of the College of Arts and Humanities.
My professional acting and directing career spans from 1974 to the present. I am a member of Actors’ Equity Association, and specialize in classical acting. I’ve worked with the Wisconsin Shakespeare Festival, the American Shakespeare Center, and Shakespeare in Delaware Park in Buffalo NY. My theatrical home has become Buffalo, where I’ve worked with every major theatre in the city.
