Currently Technology Coordinator & Teacher for Antioch High School, I just finished a stint as a Visiting Educator (Educational Technology Coordinator) with Butte County Office of Education. In 2012 I created and served as Media/Tech Academy Director for Antioch High where I was previously Theatre Arts Director from 1996-2012. I am a Google Certified Teacher & Education Trainer, a Microsoft Innovative Educator, one of California's inaugural Leading Edge Certified Online Teachers, and an adjunct theatre professor for Los Medanos College. After receiving my BA in Drama from UC Irvine and MA in Theatre Directing from the Chicago College of Performing Arts, my penchant for technology and communication collided with the creation of ShakespeareCast.com in 2005. Before teaching, I worked as an actor, director, producer, and Arts Education Administrator for the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival. I am a longtime member of Actors' Equity Association, Theatre Bay Area, and countless educator and technology groups. I also present workshops on Mobile Devices in Education, gamification, and Google tools at various conferences across the country.
