How did you first connect to PlayWrite?
I was introduced to Bruce and PlayWrite back in 2005/2006. I was working on a project at Artist Rep with actor Chris Harder, who referred me as a replacement facilitator (Chris had a conflict and couldn't participate in a residency).
Can you recall the most memorable PlayWrite character you have performed as?
I've loved all the characters I have been called on to portray, but the one that stands out most is: The Punching Bag in Cristina's play, Possible Emptiness.
What else are you involved in?
I recently had the pleasure of working with The Red Door Project and the August Wilson Monologue Competition, besides doing a number of theatre projects around the city.
