Director of Corporate Development and Events at the Warehouse Theatre in Greenville, South Carolina.
“It’s hard to narrow it down to just one. That tiny tin shack in the back of the McAlister’s parking lot poured more love, support and confidence into me as a young artist and professional. From dance parties in the studio, very late nights in the computer lab and costume shop, smack talking at the dartboard, and performances on the main stage, that rickety old building was such a home. I could say memory after memory, but there is one day I remember that I think encompasses the spirit of The Playhouse. I was in Rhett’s stagecraft class and was painting my brick cloth. Because it was a normal, busy day, all the professors happened to be walking through. Each took the time to stop and talk to me and offer advice on either how to paint better (or really faster) or realize that not everything is precious or just see how I was doing with life in general. It was a memory I hold close to my heart because in that one afternoon I felt so many people care for me and my work. It was special. That’s because the Furman Playhouse is special.”
