I'm so happy to direct again in The Road Theatre's Summer Playwrights Festival, which has retuned to it's live and in-person format at our theatre on Magnolia. Date by Amy Goddard takes us to the current pandemic "in-between times" when connecting as humans is more challenging than ever.
Lovely working on Velina Hasu Houston's beautiful play, Setting the Table, directed by Stewart J. Zully for Playwrights' Arena.
I am directing again in The Road Theatre's 11th Annual Playwrights Festival, the largest staged reading festival in the US. We are a digital format this year and taking Zoom by storm. I am delighted to direct Catching Up by Emily Jerez, which will air on August 2 at 6pm. I am also reading in The Machine by Matthew Libby (directed by Michael Michetti), airing on August 14, and Warren and the Polar Bear by Jim Geoghan (directed by Kate Huffman), airing on August 16. Each play reading in the Festival will remain available On Demand for 24 hours after the air date.

Voiceover in quarantine! Happy to be working from my home studio. A commercial for Renovation Realty, plus narration on two more documentaries.
My second year in a row mentoring undergraduate and graduate acting students in the Center Theatre Group's Going Pro Mentorship program. Choosing to take on the world of professional theatre after graduation is courageous enough but my hat is off to these aspiring young artists taking the leap during a pandemic shutdown. Sending the students and graduates my very best wishes on the journey!

I was in the world premiere of The Spanish
Prayer Book by Angela J. Davis. This powerful
play was a Eugene O'Neill semi-finalist and was
directed by the brilliant Lee Sankowich. I was
in the Alternate Cast with an extraordinary
ensemble of actors that included Hollywood
heavyweight, Stephen Tobolowsky, and I also performed with the Main Cast on opening night.
I acted and directed in The Road Theatre's 10th Annual Summer Playwrights Festival, the largest stage reading festival in the US. I acted in Elizabeth's Sampson's A Window With No Glass (directed by Founding Festival Director, Scott Alan Smith) and I directed
Figueroa by Jeffery Wang.
I performed one of my stories in Common Ground at The Road Theatre.
I'm in a short film called The Small, which is also being pitched as a pilot episode for a TV series. It is currently doing the festival circuit and screened at Dances With Films Festival and ITVFest.
I did voiceover for a PBS documentary, John Lewis: Get in the Way. It has been airing on PBS each February during Black History Month.
