What did you do before you began teaching at Kaskaskia College? Before going into teaching I worked with a Comedy Team in Los Angeles. I wrote sketches for the group and performed with them. I have also written plays and monologues for performances and auditions.

How do you inspire your students to learn? My former students and my current students inspire me. I love hearing from former students when they have an audition for a play or film or commercial. I love watching them perform on television, film, commercials, and stage. And my current students inspire me to challenge them so that they may also reach for the stars and work towards a career in their chosen field.
