As a director I have a strong passion for storytelling, rooted in the depth of history that exists within the characters, bringing light and truth to what is yet unknown. I believe that theater has the power to move people, elicit conversations and bring change to the world. The great actor Charles Dutton once said "You go to the movies to be entertained. You go to the theater to have a life changing experience".  Creating Art that brings forth that life altering experience, is what excites me and drives me to pursue excellence.
