Teaching Philosophy 

Whether working in higher education, as a teaching artist, or creator for young actors, the goal is to cultivate a brave space for performers of all ages and experiences. To provide a platform for every student to surprise themselves, experiment, relish in the successes of oneself and others, support each other through failures, and to have compassionate conversations; it is a uniquely nurturing and creatively charged environment.

Acting comes from empathy, and that is what our world needs now more than ever. By fostering empathy, respect, a desire to listen (to ourselves and others) and the bravery to follow our authentic impulses, we are able to spread truth and incite necessary change.
