Jens is an award winning actor and theatre maker who engages middle school, high school or adult groups in his residencies. He has over 20 years of professional experience from the Kennedy Center and Folger Shakespeare Theatre in our nation's capital, to stages in New York City and across the country.

As an instructor he has developed curriculum in Movement, Voice, Stage Combat, Acting (Shakespeare as well as contemporary) and Devising. His work grounds students in ‘Life Skills through Stage Skills’, which can be tailored with faculty to target specific curriculum or populations and built around short sessions of stage craft, such as speech and movement, or longer term residencies in which the students write and perform in their own original work.
