What is your philosophy? “It’s not just about creativity; it’s about the person you are becoming while creating.” ~Charlie Peacock. It is more important for my students to learn how to be kind and respectful people than to be amazing theatre practitioners. Mutual respect and kindness are highly valued both for my life and my classroom.

What is something that makes YOU unique? My ability to organize anything, my attention to detail, my love of laughter, and my compassionate and welcoming spirit. 

Favorite Artist (musician, writer, director, painter, etc.): Too many to list! I have very eclectic tastes – love piano music, Beatles, Broadway tunes, classical; pop (Charlie Puth!) and more; Artists: Monet, Renoir, Norman Rockwell, Banksy, William Hartnett; Directors: Jodie Foster, Wes Anderson, David Fincher, Susan Stroman

What are your hobbies? Being a leader for Texas Thespians
