Originally from upstate New York, Jamie holds a BA in Theater Arts, an MFA in Acting and most recently earned his MFA in Arts Administration from Texas Tech University.

Talking of his philosophy on stage managing:

“It really takes a unique individual. The best stage managers are almost invisible; you don’t even know they’re there. But they’re the ones that really help the director’s goals come to fruition. They guide the ship into harbor.”

A believer in STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts and Math education), Jamie is excited to bring his passion into ACC classrooms. “The skills that I teach in the classroom go beyond here; I really want students to be successful wherever they chose to be.”

Jamie’s first production with the ACC Drama Department is Farragut North. Directed by Perry Crafton, the show opens November 5.
