Teaching Artist Arts Administrator Consultant Actor/Playwright/Director
I believe that the practice of experiencing and creating theatre can build a bridge of compassion, understanding, and knowledge about other cultures, communities, histories, stories, and ways of life that are beyond the everyday. I work in artistic collaboration with my students, colleagues, and fellow artists to tell stories, practice our own creativity, and develop an artistic community that allows us the freedom to imagine people and experiences that are not our own. Through this practice, we can elevate and widen our world view and evaluate how we participate and exist within it. We create, rehearse, and perform plays and performance pieces in the hopes that the experience will lead us and our audiences to a truer connection and understanding of our world, the people in it, and the stories we share.
