As a shy young teen, Jeff was told by a teacher to “get out of his shell” by volunteering at the local neighborhood community theatre. This was in 1984 and he hasn’t stopped since. Having been involved in over 300 productions throughout Southern California, primarily in the Ventura and Los Angeles Counties, Jeff has worked in almost every theatrical medium from Shakespeare to Sondheim, Melodrama to Mozart (and almost everything in-between). Jeff continues to work, professionally, as a director/choreographer/educator within the Ventura and Los Angeles Counties within many professional and local companies and colleges and universities throughout the area.
Jeff is a member of the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society, the California Educational Theatre Association, and is a former member of Actors Equity Association.
Currently, Jeff is enjoying his recent role as a “late in life” student, pursuing his B.A in Performing Arts from the LEAP Program out of St. Mary’s College. Then, it’s on to his M.A. Stay tuned.
