I graduated from Brigham Young University in 1997 with a degree in Theatre Arts Education. During my education, I participated in the production of both films and plays directed by students, faculty and professionals at the LDS film studio. As a high school teacher, I composed and directed the musical play "A Knight in Shining Rags" performed by Taylorsville High School in 1997. I also directed this play for amateur theatre groups in Arizona and Idaho. Other plays I have been involved in both as actor and technical crew: Peter Pan, Into the Woods, The Crucible, Harvey, To Kill a Mockingbird, and many others. Recently, I have served as a stage makeup artist for amateur theatre groups in Tooele and Grantsville.
