Born in Ohio, Corey attended Ohio State University where he stage managed and directed many shows including his Undergraduate Honors Thesis on different interpretations of King Lear.
After college, he moved to California where he has worked with a number of prestigious theater companies including A Noise Within and the Mark Taper Forum. He has also worked in varying capacities on television shows like The Nanny, EZ Streets, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, GSN Live, and The ShowBiz Show with David Spade.
He also worked for a time as the Development Assistant for Kadokawa Pictures USA, and was the Assistant to the Producer for the Warner Brothers’ film One Missed Call.
In 1998, he decided to experience the world and lived overseas teaching English. He spent 4 years in China and a year in Spain. He has also traveled to Japan, Hong Kong, Macao, Thailand, France, Ireland, Belgium, and The UK. As a result, he’s conversant in (Mandarin) Chinese, and has some ability to communicate in French and Spanish (and on a good day, English).
Recently, he has been working as an event manager and technical director for UCLA’s Herb Alpert School of Music. He helps oversee two theaters and handles literally hundreds of events a year. To view the website he built for the theaters, please visit schoenbergtheaters.com.
