How I Became a Director; or How Directing Became Me

In college, I focused mainly on performance. I originally intended to graduate, move to Chicago, act for a few years, and then seek classical training some place. Instead I graduated, started a theatre company, moved it to Baltimore, and became a director.

In 2007, I directed my first full length play,  Red Light Winter by Adam Rapp. A few months later, as I played Carl in The Baltimore Waltz by Paula Vogel. Although it was a great role, and there is something wonderful about acting, I personally got more out of directing, and I have performed since.

Above, you can see my director’s statement, and along the “Past Works” tab you can see the productions I’ve directed. The links variously contain production and rehearsal photos, my thoughts on the production, and video.
