For over 20 years I have been honing and combining my skills as an artist. The goal is always to tell a story through visuals, words, and movement. It is an art to draw people in and show them a new way to see things, to think; this is what artists of any genre do.
Theatre, in particular, is by far the most amazing implementation of this concept. Artists work together as a team to tell a story that brings strangers and friends alike into a room to share an experience. We as artists leave exonerated and free, and the audience leaves refreshed and charged (or at least they should). It’s both physical & emotional.
I have had the honor of working with numerous playwrights and artists through my retired Theater Co. TAPT. I often focus on new material in development and getting it on its feet for the playwright and everyone involved on and off the stage to engage and bring the stories to life. Currently, I serve as the Creator and Chair of the Theatre Committee at the historic actors club, The Players. Our one-night events have continuously sold out. We are in the process of planning our season now.
I have always loved collaboration, both with people and genre to build a community that is willing and excited to ask difficult questions while honoring one another as human beings with respect and honesty.
Art is a beautiful and genuine observation of the world and I consider myself a fortunate collaborator.
