“In the late 90s, I shifted my focus from performing when I was offered the artistic director position of a small professional theatre in an economically challenged city. I thought this would only be for a few years, but I discovered a passion for developing and producing new plays that would transform and empower and unify diverse communities. I believe that, at its best, theatre inspires understanding of the rich complexity of the human experience. It gives voice to the silent and dignity to the dispirited. Through the creation, production, and performance of theatre, we chart a passage to grace – in ourselves, in others, and throughout our community. These values act as my compass, guiding me as an actor, a person, a teacher, and a producer.”
