“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.

Oh, and hockey makes for some pretty compelling storytelling as well.
