Artistic Statement

Artistic Statement

For me, it all began with a no. No, you can’t go into theater. But, no’s are nothing but roadblocks that with enough effort can be turned into stepping-stones. So, the summer after my sophomore year of high school I started my first play. I am a writer. It didn’t take me too long to figure that out. Words are power to create, speak, change, and persuade. They are what I love. This love has defined who I am and almost every aspect of my life. Any question I have I put into the mouths of characters and have them hash it out, helping me see things more clearly and more completely. I always come out of the process with more questions, but I love being part of the conversation.
