I started as a Shakespeare-loving acrobat turned dancer for the stage -> which lead me to choreography and directing and tap dancing --> which lead to musicals and singing, oh singing!
I went to school for music and trained as a classical singer and then finally delved into the world of voice for the stage. I have come full circle as a text-loving, voice and acrobatic movement coach. Every discipline calls me back to words, to movement, to the human experience. The integration of different media for expression - the desire to be where they all merge, that's what makes me an actor.
