Jeff has been involved in theater for over 42 years as an actor, fight choreographer, musician, playwright, and director. For 10 of those years, Jeff served as the Director of Theater at Concordia University at Austin. During his tenure at CUA, the theater produced what was described as “a bold, brash, relentlessly creative 10-year renaissance in collegiate theater in the state of Texas.” As a 7-year-old, Jeff got his start in theater dressed in a long white beard of felt and cotton wearing a big pontiff-like hat playing Saint Nicholas in the second grade Christmas play Santa on Trial. By the following Christmas, Jeff performed the role of Tiny Tim, wearing a frayed and threadbare newsboy cap, in a professional production of A Christmas Carol. Wearing remarkable hats in both productions, how could he not begin a life-long love affair with the stage? Since then Jeff has never not been involved in theater.
