Additional information:

I lived in Japan for six years, studying and performing Kyōgen. I now teach Asian Theatre at the Theatre Conservatory of Roosevelt University in Chicago. Each summer I return to Japan to continue my studies and perform and lecture on Kyōgen. During the school year, in addition to my classes at Roosevelt, I perform, lecture and lead workshops on Kyōgen for groups in the U.S.
