Geographical Regions of Interest

  • United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
    As Director of both the Theatre, Fine Arts, and Humanities in London Learning Abroad and the London on Stage-Go Learn Continuing Education Programs, I spend 2 ½ months per year in the UK. I spent a significant amount of my year-long 2011 sabbatical in Oxford, London, and Stratford researching for a feature screenplay. I have worked to bring theatre directors from the UK to the University and theatre professionals to our students and Utah community when they are in the UK. I welcome any opportunity to expand my role for the University in the UK.
