For me, working to build a strong ensemble and creating dynamic, focused performances by deep-tissue listening/responding to my fellow actors and our environment is at the core of how I work as an artist, but also why I love doing the work. The intense human connection that occurs when actors onstage are highly attuned to one another, to their surroundings, and to the audience's breath and energy--this human connection is one of the things that drives me to work in the theatre. No man is an island on stage, or in the wings, or in the booth, or sitting in the gallery. For that span of time, we rely on one another for communication, connection, and compassion. It is how I wished we lived more frequently in our "real" lives. It is how I live my "real" life.
This started out as an introductory post, in which I was going to tell you some perfunctory facts about my history, this site--but I think this is just as good a beginning. Thank you for visiting.
