I am a musician and theatre artist (acting, voice and movement) who is strongly moved by the power of the arts to empower and shape us as human beings. I write, play, perform, teach and nurture others in self-expression. I believe creativity is our life force, and as human beings we are called to discover and develop our talents, and use them in service of the greater good.
Whether teaching or coaching, I encourage my students to observe, listen, respond and actively engage in the learning process. My passion is to assist students in finding material to challenge them in their growth, whether they are new to the arts, or have been performing for many years.
