    I am thrilled to be the new Theatre Arts and Film Media Production Teacher at UMS!

    A little about myself:

    I graduated from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and have been working professionally in the film, television and theatre industries for 20+ years. From casting Broadway and network television roles, to adapting a screenplay for one of the greatest living filmmakers, to producing branded, multi-platform content at CBS Interactive, I've long been entrusted with being the person in charge of "the big picture".  I'm very excited to share my experiences and industry knowledge with our wonderful MTSD community and I'm honored to play a supporting role in nurturing the strong, creative minds of our student body.

    Whether your child is interested in performing on stage, working behind-the-scenes, growing more confident speaking in public or simply wants to be part of a welcoming community, each student can find ways to connect creatively while developing their own unique voice. 

    Information for 7th and 8th grade Visual and Performing Arts can be found on our UMS site as well as on our Google Classroom pages. Please check the sites for important updates, announcements, and more.

    Looking forward to a wonderful year together!
