I started out as a director of new plays downtown. If you wanted something moving, funny, beautiful, but you had no time and no money, I could do it for you. While my horizons have grown, the skills I developed early still scaffold everything I do. I am a deep and sensitive reader. I’m very good at working with playwrights to discover the story they want to tell. I create an environment which brings out my collaborators’ best work. I can make an audience laugh. I almost never lose my cool.
To these skills, I have added a host of others: I have shot with four cameras in a studio, and a single camera on location. I have directed Shakespeare with casts of 16, and 6. I have collaborated with composers and video designers. I have worked with movie stars and students, for audiences from New York City to Texas and beyond.
