Mr. Blackwell received his B.S. in University Studies from BYU-Idaho. His focus was primarily Dance, Mechanical Engineering, Communications, and Pre-Chiropractics.
After graduating from BYU-I, Blackwell moved to Boise, ID in 2006 where he worked with Starlight Mountain Theatre as a summer stock actor. Working a number of jobs in the Valley, including being the Technical Director for the Nampa Civic Center, Blackwell found a way to get involved in nearly every community theater in the Valley.
Since then he has been seen on stage and backstage in over 55 theatrical productions in the Treasure Valley alone. Having completed his M.F.A. in Theatre from the University of Idaho in 2011, he hopes to enjoy teaching the Theatre Arts for many years to come, and wants nothing more than to share his passion for the arts with the next generation!
In 2013 Mr. Blackwell got married and moved to Weiser, ID where he and his family enjoy the quiet, small, and diverse town. Mr. Blackwell is excited to be teaching at Fruitland Middle School, and hopes he can make a difference in the lives of his students.
