Director CenterPoint Academy
I got started in theater really young, but I became passionate about it when I was in Junior High, and my parents founded Pages Lane Theatre with my uncle and aunt, Ralph and Joan Rodgers. It has been in my soul ever since. Theater is important because, when we do it right, it makes people better – more thoughtful, more intentional, more compassionate and more awesome.
I started acting at CPT in the first season. Have been working with the Academy since 2015. I started teaching here because Margo Beecher, the patron saint of CenterPoint Academy, asked me to. My favorite role ever was Archibald Craven. The most challenging project I ever worked on was Jekyll and Hyde. The show that changed my life being part of it was Pirate Queen. My favorite Academy show so far is probably Xanadu. And the best thing I ever saw with my own eyes was the OBC of Ragtime in 1998.
I LOVE SMOKING MEATS AND DRINKING TAB.
