Artist & Educator
M.F.A. in Acting, University of Georgia
B.F.A. in Acting, Old Dominion University
When approaching Theatre, either as an actor, director, playwright or even as a spectator, there is not one technique that fits each person’s personal aesthetics or interests. In the realms of theatrical performance exists a platform for artists to explore their own roots, questions about morality and society, and spirituality. This is the basis of my performative and outreach initiatives: creating an environment for individuals that is free from predispositions and limitations.
As a teacher, I see myself first and foremost, as a collaborator with each individual student in their creative process.
I have instructed/workshopped undergraduate courses in Acting for Non-Majors, History of African-American Theatre, Characterization, Solo Performance, and provided youth community-based workshops in audition prep and personal/artistic development. My approach to education always centers around providing a sacred space for discovery, exploration, and individuality.
