History

A quick look at where I've been

  • Beginnings

    At home in Helena, Montana

    I grew up in small town Montana performing in community theater productions with Grandstreet Theatre, Helena Theater Company and occasionally with the Carroll College theater department.

  • 2005-2007

    College years in Wellington, NZ

    I got my Bachelor of the Arts in Theatre and English from Victoria University in sunny Wellington, New Zealand. I loved working in Welly, it was there I formed an idea of the kind of theater I wanted to make.

  • 2011-2014

    Helikos in Florence, Italy

    I completed three years of physical theater training with world class teachers and a powerful group of actors. Over the course of the training I developed as a mime, red-nose clown, mask maker and player.

  • 2014-2016

    Mask making in Istanbul, Turkey

    While living in Istanbul I developed a series of masks for Fiziksel Tiyatro ve Komedi Okulu a physical theater school in the city.

  • 2017-2018

    Return to Montana

    I joined forces with my wife Ilgaz to form Galloping Hand LLC. We make theatre related workshops for kids in the Helena and East Helena Public Schools.
