Doc Waller

Judith Pickens
As a performance artist, writer, and director, U.S. Air Force veteran Doc Waller uses a variety of media to bring the written word to life.

His career has spanned from dance companies to national television, but he most recently served as the executive artistic director and founder of an Alabama nonprofit Arts organization called The Layman Group to nurture the talents of young artists. While leading the organization, he directed a long list of productions: plays, exhibitions of fine art, contemporary dance productions, performance pieces, multimedia projects, public art showings, and an original music series. And he currently hosts a web video series: “On Beauty with Doc Waller.”
