Professionally, what’s your goal?
My goal is to make exciting theatre.  I love working with other creative people that have a shared aesthetic and philosophy. I step into various roles depending on what the project needs. Whether that be as a actor, director, stage manager, dancer, choreographer or just an idiot in a leotard pumping up the audience.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
At the end of the day it's 'a play'. Sometimes as artists we can take our work very seriously and get anxious and stressed. But at the end of the day it's not brain surgery, we're making art to inspire other people and the best art comes from the joy of play, even the most tragic stories.

Why do you do what you do?
Basically I do what I do because it makes me happy. And I'm good at it.
