"How can I help my students realize life through art?. A foundational tool in theater—and life—is the ability to communicate. I believe that we are all inherently storytellers and it is my goal to support and encourage my students to follow their creative impulses in discovering, crafting and telling their own stories. To be truthful on stage means we must be truthful in life, and through theater and art making, I work towards cultivating a creative space for students to be honest with themselves and in their work."
