"I believe that some of the most valuable life skills such as empathy, creativity, resilience, and inclusion can be taught through theatre. Students learn best when they are treated as the fully competent, exceptional human beings they are. I believe that art should be accessible to all and that it can be used as a catalyst for sustainable change. My practice is centered around the transformative power of art, art-making, and PLAY!"
