Getting Personal: ”My passion is for new work for theater and performance that is always socially and/or politically engaging. Call me an idealist, but I love working on art that dares to challenge the norm or ask the question why. I feel it is important that theater fuels knowledge and promotes change and awareness of the world around us whether it asks a question or creates beauty and laughter that allows a person to continue being an active member in her world and community. I am always looking to connect with other companies that share these goals and passions. I am in constant search to learn something new. In my ‘free time,’ I enjoy dancing in the rain with my son and husband and getting inked.”
