I have trained as a Fight Choreographer for three years. I hold S.F.D. certifications in Broadsword and Single Sword and I have additional training in Hand-to-Hand, Quarterstaff, Found Objects, and Dagger.
Recent work includes productions of Emily Dickinson Paranormal Investigator with Powerout NYC and The Tempest with The Fools and Kings Project
I have worked as a choreographer on multiple Shakespearean shows including Twelfth Night with the Foothills Theatre Company and as an assistant choreographer on productions of Taming of the Shrew with We Happy Few Company and Romeo and Juliet with Lion's Tooth Theatre Company as well as an Apprentice in Macbeth with Saratoga Shakespeare Company.
My training in stage combat has come from Doug Seldin of Shakespeare and Company as well as Geoffrey Kent of the Denver Center for Performing Arts among others. I can also teach the basics of safe stage combat to people of all ages and have done so for productions I was involved with.
I believe there’s no excuse for unsafe violence in any show. Every moment of physical interaction in theatre is its own story that deserves to be told well, and violence is no exception. My job is to help tell that story.
