Statement of Philosophy:

Teaching voice, text work, speech and dialects is a joyful part of my life. When we are in class or in rehearsal, I hope the students I work with will sense this joy and experience it for themselves, as these feelings will keep them studying and growing, not just as students, but as human beings, too. My work is deeply influenced by the wonderful practitioners I have studied with at ARTA, namely Travis James in New York and Los Angeles.
