Currently I am an adjunct professor at Western Connecticut State University (5 years) and the Technical Director for Sharon Playhouse in Sharon, CT.

     I have been the owner, along with my wife, of In Motion Dance Center in Lagrangeville, NY for the last 27 years.  I am the technical director as well as the designer of the end of year recital.  I have also been a magician for 40 years having performed along the northeast coast, Hersheypark, and in Germany.   I have a varied background that encompasses circus skills (balancing, juggling,), magic, stage combat, krav maga (level 3 practitioner), balloon sculptor, dance, voice, and set design.   I have also been the set designer, technical director, and sometime fight choreographer for Arlington High School in Lagrangeville, NY.

      In January of 2013 I returned to school after a 25 year break.   Why the break?  I was a junior at Lehman center for the performing arts in the Bronx and got an opportunity to go to Germany and perform in a show for 6 months.   I promised my parents I would return to school upon the end of my contract.   Well, 25 years later, I fulfilled that promise, and it was one of the best decisions I've made.  WCSU students and faculty welcomed me with open arms and I graduated with my B.A. in Theatre Arts - Performance option in 2014.   Skip to one year later and I joined the adjunct faculty as Technical Director.   Now, with encouragement from colleagues, I am pursuing my MFA in Theatre Arts - Technical Direction at the University of Idaho, wit a May 2020 anticipated graduation.

    Please feel free to look around, contact me with questions.

                                Thank you!   Tom
