Professor of theatre
My graduate degree is in scenic design, but I have been working on all aspects of “behind the scenes” for the last 25 years. While designing is my favorite, I also spend a lot of time serving as production manager.
One of the best things about majoring in theatre at Franklin College is our proximity to Indianapolis. We are able to get guest artists to come down and work with our students. And we are also able to take our students up to see how other theaters operate, whether it’s with performances or tours of spaces, it’s important that we give students the opportunities to see how other theatre artists do it. It’s also great to start building connections.

I love to cook, especially for my family. I also really love to do laundry! Nothing is better than clean clothes.
