I live in Claremont, CA, a beautiful college town located approximately an hours drive east of Los Angeles, and run a company called Actorswork that trains professional actors for working in film and television. My passion is rock climbing and has been for thirty years and I love everything that takes me into the wilderness. I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and began teaching in Seattle in the 1990's as a way to visit "home". I added Dallas to my teaching schedule last year and now find myself traveling to both cities several times a year. I am married with a sixteen year old daughter and my family is my first priority.
