Self-employed Freelance Theatre Performer who writes and produces his own material and tours it.

“I think one of the things I appreciate about the Playhouse is because we learn from it. One of my favorite memories was the idea of developing a Commedia play from a scenario in the 16th century. We spent the year learning how to improvise and then we took the scenario and created a play and then we did the play. They gave us the freedom to really do bad theatre but in actuality, it turned out really well. All the folks who were involved in it learned a lot and understood about taking risks and the kind of work that goes into it. So, I really enjoyed the freedom to explore and to test the limits of our abilities to grow and see if we can take them someplace else.”
