I have been doing theater since I was 14 years old. I started out as a runner - a small role behind the scenes. Nothing could have captivated me more - seeing actors on stage, smelling makeup and hairspray, colors and design of lights and set. It became my addiction and I haven't stopped. I graduated from CSU Chico with a degree in Theater Arts - technical/directing and also have a minor in Creative Writing - playwriting. In order to teach theater, I earned a secondary English credential in 1999 and have been at PVHS ever since. I believe that anyone and everyone has a place in theater - as actor, designer, director, or producer - and that theater can change the world.
