I have two passions in life: family and drama.  Fortunately, there is a lot of overlap between the two.  In theatre, every cast and crew I've ever worked with has become my extended family.  We work together, laugh together, and perform together.  My life in theatre has taught me so much about how to view life, how to make connections, and how to celebrate humanity.  I'm thankful to my wife, Cassandra, and my two kids, Jackson and Brooklyn, for helping me grow into a better person every day, and I'm thankful for my students who push me to be the best teacher I possibly can.
