Most Memorable CCAC Experience
I have had several memorable experiences, both as a student and instructor. So, I am going with my "Rules of Theater Etiquette" song that I performed to Tina Turner's "Proud Mary" before my Introduction to Stage Direction class's one-act performances several years ago.
Why I Teach What I Teach
In this world of social media and advancing technologies, I believe we are losing pieces of our own humanity and interpersonal relationship skills. Theater is a way to creatively engage and practice those skills, which can serve us well every day.
Something People Might Not Know About Me
I once voiced a Marvel character for a live-action graphic novel.
