Current Research

Helping Up Mission Project-

Applying theatre practices as rehabilitative therapy to residents of Baltimore City's Helping Up Mission, a residential facility for homeless and/or substance addicted men, I guide the residents in writing their autobiographical monologues, addressing the choices and circumstances that brought them to the Mission. Actors then perform the monologues, accompanied by musicians and dancers, culminating in an event that is truth telling, transformational, applied theatre. The Mission Project seeks to explore the application of arts programs in a residential, rehabilitative setting and its affects on the residents' anger management and coping strategies.

Philosophy of Education/ Pedagogy


. . . I empower the actor through a pedagogy of rigorous vocal, physical, emotional and intellectual exploration and discipline. As a teacher I facilitate an environment of safety, allowing the actor to hone his craft through improvisation and collaboration, sense memory, guided imagery, scene study, movement and voice.  Instruction in critical theory, script analysis, dramaturgy, and textual history supports the artist's firm foundation for personal growth and creativity . . .
