Discerning a vocation in the performing arts often requires one to be flexible, elastic and adaptable. Consequently, I have found myself in the role of educator, moderator, producer, journalist and writer. For me this means integrate your heart and open your brain to new ideas, experiences, roles and challenges. Fail gloriously if you must, but often success comes in small bites. My goal is to view myself as a piece of the whole, and meet each challenge with respect, guidance and purpose.
