I have spent the last 17 years teaching various versions of English and Drama at numerous high schools, including:
Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory in San Francisco
Alhambra High School in Martinez
Carondelet High School in Concord
Connections Visual and Performing Arts Academy in Tuolumne
Since, 2006, I have taught English at Columbia College, while a few years prior, I taught English at Butte College in Oroville. The theatre has been a huge part of my life, having performed on East Bay Area stages for 22 years. In fact, my children spend many a schoolnight, securely wrapped in sleeping bags, spread out between theatre seats sleeping while I rehearsed.
A few mottos, driving my life:
Art holds a mirror up to Nature and, as humans, we are charged with looking at the reflections!
Pay it Forward.
The greatest casualty is being forgotten.
