ABOUT ME

JDPH2793-Edit.jpg

I believe in the unifying power of Stories. 

 

My fifteen years of experience as an actor, playwright, and director and 6 years of experience as an educator have given me the joyful opportunity to be a student of Humanity forever. I find joy in answering the important question: What motivates us to make the choices we do?

 

As the world continues to cause destruction and delight, I am driven as an artist to uncover understanding among the chaos. As an educator, I am inspired by the benefit arts education can have for the individual who is discovering the transformative power of their own potential.
