The Team at IMPROVentures
           

Milo Shapiro
C.E.O. -- Creative Energy Officer

Milo Shapiro is involved in virtually every aspect of the company - from marketing to bookings to performance.  He had 15 years of corporate and government experience as a computer programmer and project lead before making the full-time move to corporate training, public speaking, and improv entertainment through IMPROVentures.


He began studying improv in 1990, joined his first troupe in 1992, and began teaching in 1993.  Since that time, he has been in literally thousands of improvisation scenes and taught hundreds of classes.

More on his experience can be found on his qualifications page.

Lee Krevat
C.I.O. -- Chief Improv Overseer

Lee Krevat began his practice of improv in 1980 with New York City’s "Chicago City Limits", where he studied until leaving for Carnegie Mellon University, well known for its excellent Theatre program – although Lee graduated with a degree in Computer Science. 

 

Lee is currently Director of Information Technology for Sempra Energy by day and an improviser whenever possible by night.  In an effort to bring his two worlds together, Lee collaborates with Milo Shapiro on the presentation “Whose Line-Manager Is It Anyway?”

Laura J. Willcock
C.F.O. -- Corporate Fun Officer

Laura J. Willcock has served as manager and entertainment director in numerous nightclubs and restaurants over the past 15 years.  In the process, she successfully crossed both the entertainment and business worlds as she balanced the varying needs of entertainers, catering staff, and meeting planners.

 

As owner and executive producer of Fish-On-A-Stick Talent, she has produced improvisation, sketch comedy shows, musical revues and more, leaving her known by many fans in Michigan as “Princess Laura”.  Laura is pleased to be available to co-present “Whose Line-Manager Is It Anyway?” and "TheaterMakers"

Joanne Roshon
D.C.M. -- Director of Childish Mirth

Joanne has been studying and performing improvisation since the early nineties, including twice attending two-week intensives in Calgary to hone her craft with the founder/guru of TheatreSports, Keith Johnstone.  Beyond her years of improv work with the San Diego chapter of TheatreSports, Joanne has been a member of three other troupes as well and was a part of the "Dr. Zoolittle" improvised mystery show at the San Diego Wild Animal Park.

Joanne capably assists Milo in TEAMprovising at times when the group could use more than one person keeping things moving well on track.

Mark Jennings
H.R.M. -- Humor Resource Manager

Mark Jennings is the co-owner of Face to Face Productions, bringing together religion and theatre for audiences who appreciate the value in both.

 

Mark is a co-creator of TheaterMakers and is happy to step into either role in the show when he is needed for a show.

Rita Mooney
I.T.A. -- Inspirational Training Associate

Rita Mooney has been a staple of the San Diego improvisation community since the 1980s, appearing in multiple troupes and teaching classes for nearly a decade.  Her training is rooted in the belief that improvisation thrives when we are listening, supporting, and committing.

 

It is through these beliefs that she becomes a strong resource for co-teaching the TEAMprovising™ course with Milo at IMPROVentures.  Co-teaching allows for demonstration and more personal feedback than when TEAMprovising™ is taught by a single instructor.

 

IMPROVentures draws upon other resources as well
