My directing career started working with children and developed into a profession.  I have directed plays, musicals and vaudeville acts.  At THE SPOT theater, where I was the Producing Director, I directed each of the 5 shows in our best-selling, best-reviewed and final season of 2013-2014.

“All four actors (Authentic Life of Billy the Kid), as directed by the Spot’s producing director Jake Liam McGuire, do outstanding jobs bringing their characters alive.”
– Brad Memberto (Santa Maria Times)
