The truth is
I am a living, breathing contradiction.
Nothing about me makes sense,
except for one thing:
I AM AN ARTIST.
It's crazy how hard I’ve worked to deny this…
pursuing an endless string of random careers,
chasing a paycheck...
The ONLY thing that kept me tethered to my DREAM
was teaching the next generation of artists,
something I did for over 30 years,
when I wasn't getting sidetracked trying
to find a “real” career.
The artists I raised did not believe
that art was a secondary, frivolous pursuit...
something you got to do
after "real" work was accomplished.
Their courage made me realize
I had been a pretender
who had lived her entire life
with one toe dipped in the pond...
Watching my students (now "my tribe") create art
and make their mark on the world
REAWAKENED something in me,
I stopped denying my TRUE self.
It has been a long journey to get here,
but at last...
I AM ALL IN.
Last summer I directed the theatre camps at Central Park Performing Arts Center in Largo, Florida... working with children is incredibly demanding and exhausting, but man oh man, the pay off is indescribable. It never fails to amaze me how much I fall in love with the kids I work with.
Last year I not only set a goal to start doing professional theatre, I also decided to start pursuing work in film, television and commercials. I am so excited to announce that I have just signed with Level Talent Group!
I just booked the most interesting gig EVER at American Stage: White Rabbit Red Rabbit. For one show and one show only I will be doing a performance without any rehearsal at all. Believe me when I say that this is WAY out of my comfort zone/wheelhouse.
BUT I HAVE DECIDED FROM NOW ON TO EMBRACE THE TRULY TERRIFYING.
