Aloha and Welcome! I am thrilled to be the new Drama and Film teacher and step into the very large shoes left by Mr. Schmelzenbach and Mr. Carlson. (literally large, they left me a pair of clown shoes...) I grew up on Kauai, Hawaii and when that rock got too small I moved to the bigger rock of Oahu, Hawaii where I studied Theater at the University of Hawaii. After graduating I taught acting and film while performing in many a local movie, commercial, and theatre piece (oh and the odd improv troop here and there)... and a couple of extra roles and small bits in not so local movies and tv shows. I then moved to Hollywood where I worked in casting and Talent management, and doing a few extra jobs and film work for fun... which brought me back to my first true love... teaching! My husband and I moved here with our (most of the time) adorable 3 year old daughter about a year ago for his job and I was fortunate enough to land here at EMS!! I am looking forward to getting to know everyone and teaching the fine art of storytelling. Don't be surprised if you see me spontaneously burst into song or sport a viking helmet... because hey, it is drama!
