In Durham, he staged three full-length Shakespeare tragedies: Hamlet (2016), King Lear (2017), and Othello (DSA, 2018) and founded the Summer Lab Program which provides a voice for new directors in the community  (producing Waiting for Godot in the summer of 2017.) Recently he directed productions of Richard II, Phaedo, The Government Inspector, and Coriolanus in New Haven, CT where he now lives. His work is about make-believe.
