Associate Professor of Theatre Arts
After receiving my Masters and Ph.D. in theatre from Bowling Green State University, I worked as an Assistant Professor of Theatre at Lon Morris College, a liberal arts college in Texas. In 2004, I accepted a position to teach theatre and direct theatre productions here at Stetson University, and in 2010 I was promoted to Associate Professor. I currently serve as Chair of the Department of Communication Studies and Theatre Arts and direct two stage productions each year. My primary area of expertise falls within the realms of theatre history, theatre theory and dramatic literature.
