“It’s all about the story…”

Telling stories through the lens, on stage and in song


Nothing beats a good story.  Stories bring us together, provide some much-needed diversion and help us make sense of our lives.  Good stories don’t necessarily have to be real, but for them to really affect us, they need to explore a certain level of truth.  

Whether it’s directing a film crew, bringing the words of Shakespeare to life, teaching a class, performing an original song or selling a product, I approach the material with the same passion – working to uncover collective truths and puzzling out the most effective and creative ways to share resonant stories with an audience.
