When I'm not acting, I am mostly teaching and coaching in Los Angeles, seeking out my next adventure out in the wilderness with my two sons, or making something out of string. I am currently on faculty at AMDA College and Conservatory of the Performing Arts, Berg Studios, and Los Angeles City College. I have also had the pleasure to teach at the Sag-Aftra Foundation's Don La Fontaine VO Lab, IDSA LA, Cal-Arts, California High School of the Arts, NYFA, Box Union, and Garden of Sound.
