Skylar was born in Queens, New York and quickly moved to Knoxville, Tennessee at the young age of one. He was surrounded by sports and masculinity until he stumbled into the theatre in an eighth grade production of Willy Wonka Jr. and found a space for himself that felt right. 

As a theatre graduate from Middle Tennessee State University, Skylar is a Chicago based theatre artist. It has always been his belief that the best director is the one who understands and appreciates his collaborators, and can steer a group of artists towards a collective goal. Rehearsal rooms need to be built on respect and collaborative feedback, not dictatorial methodology. 

Skylar's affinity for Musical Theatre, New Works, and Theatre For Young Audiences have all merged to work on delightful projects best enjoyed by all ages. This includes original projects seen at Chicago Public Libraries, schools, and early learning centers, sketch and improv scenes, and small -  mid-size regional theatres. 

Since moving to Chicago, Skylar has been peddling away at gig after gig working with Raven, Theatre, Writers Theatre, Improv Playhouse, Midsommer Flight, Underscore Theatre Company, Mudlark Theatre, and Haven Theatre.
