Jessica is a wonderful addition to the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center. She has strong networking and project management skills to simultaneously drive multiple projects and events. She has a graduate degree in Community Leadership specializing in non-profit management and development. Jessica was the Manager of last year’s PAFAC Shakespeare production of “A Midsummer’s Night Dream," and is continuing in that position this year for “The Tempest”.
Lindsay is the newest addition to PAFAC as the Administrative Coordinator. She is an artist, creating and selling her own pieces that are inspired by nature and fine detail. She moved to the Olympic Peninsula from Southeast Alaska, with prior experience working in Alaska’s top rated art gallery. Lindsay has attended Academy of Art University, studying Interior Architecture and Design. She is looking forward to connecting with local artists, and to be a part of the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center team!

Artistic Director – Shakespeare in the Woods
Anna comes to the Olympic Peninsula from California, where she worked in theaters professionally both in Los Angeles and the Bay Area. Her single-minded pursuit of theatrical training and experience led her to discover Shakespeare at the age of 12. Within 10 years, Anna would land her dream role as Katharina in Kate Geer's production of Taming of the Shrew. At the age of 25, she became the Program Director for Shakespeare by the Sea, one of LA's largest Shakespeare Festivals. During her time in Los Angeles, Anna was also a company member of Circus Theatricals, led by Jack Stehlin and Alfred Molina. In San Francisco, she joined the Generation Theatre, a bilingual (French/English) company that made its home on the stage of the Fort Mason Theatre. While acting and directing are both close to her heart, Anna's biggest passion lies in teaching.

Event Manager – Shakespeare in the Woods
Shannon is thrilled to be working with the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center as the Event Manager for the Shakespeare in the Woods event. She attended the University of Oregon, where she majored in English. While she’s tried her hand at many things, writing is her passion. She has been known to act when talked into it, and has a background in Improv. She’s very happy to be working among the eccentric people and beautiful scenery of the Olympic Peninsula.
Exhibit Curator - Clothes Oft Proclaim the Man -- Fashion and Passion in the Time of Shakespeare
Richard has been working semi-professionally (which means he sometimes gets paid for it!) as a Costume Designer, Actor, Scenic Designer and Director for the last 30 years. Starting in Seattle he began his design work at Shoreline Community College and soon began free lance work for other colleges, schools, churches and dance academies. The demands of theater are such that you must learn many skills including prosthetic make-up, prop building and special effects which led to additional work for Richard with large haunted houses and television commercial work. Last summer Richard was one of the principle designers for Shakespeare in the Woods production of The Tempest, a production very close to his heart.
