Biography

Early years studied acting at the Neighborhood Playhouse in NYC, also studied in Sanford Meisner's, Lee Strasberg's and Stella Adler's private professional classes. I was owner/artistic director of the Court theatre in Los Angeles for over 20 years.I have directed and produced plays in LA, NYC, London and Dublin. I have acted in several plays and films. I acted as casting director for such people as Michael Douglas, Tony Richardson, Curtis Hansen and George Romero. I received a MA in Theatre Education from NYU.

 

I am interested in researching techniques, especially acting techniques, and how these techniques and processes help the artist reach the deeper levels of the creative subconscious and create the most expressive, pure performances and understandings. I am also interested in how the creative process and the creative subconscious reach the depths of understanding and experienced learning in other subjects.
