As a storyteller I create performances to help build human connection and deepen our understanding of our unique, yet shared experiences.
Collaboration, inclusivity and community building are at the foundation of my inspiration to create.
With a focus on telling actual true stories I find value in being direct with storytelling, leaving nothing (or as little as possible) to question or figure out.
