John Timothy, Teacher

John is a member of the UCB Harold Team Namaste and a writer/director for the UCB Beta Team Horse + Horse. Past work at the UCB includes the Harold teams Sandino and A Sparrow. He has trained at the UCB since 2006 with the likes of Betsy Stover, Neil Casey, Doug Moe, Porter Mason, Dyna Moe, Jeff Hiller, Jordan Klepper, and Will Hines. A graduate of Amherst College, he spent his most formative years fighting frostbite and getting tear gassed every time the Red Sox won the World Series.

John's favorite UCB moment was probably the time he was playing Hurley in The Dharma Initiative Company Picnic and almost choked to death on his wig.
