My pursuit to live an artistic life has gifted me with a constant state of flux -- in location and artform. From coast to coast, I have taught, created, and learned further about the different facets of theatre and photography. With each location, I'm continually reminded how art and life reflect each other and require collaboration. From the process to the product, a full-sensorial experience moves both audience and practitioners emotionally. It has the amazing ability to bring people together, especially in a time where we are constantly separated by our everyday elements. The ability to affect emotional change through story-telling makes art one of the most powerful and underestimated tools in our culture. In order to keep its importance, I am interested in contemporary work; how its subject matter, development, and presentation of, keeps up with our constantly transforming culture. Being both a theatrical and visual artist, I am fascinated by cross disciplinary projects. I have taught at colleges all over the country and actively work as a freelance performer, playwright, photographer, and educator.
