Genre: Performance, acting
Artist’s Statement: As an artist, I am skilled in acting, singing, movement, writing, and playing the keyboard. I believe that I would be able to integrate my various art forms in the classroom through creative role-playing, playwriting, composing and storytelling. Through these avenues, and by working with the lead teacher’s curriculum, I bring to the classroom creative ways in which to embrace learning. I am drawn to the residency program because I believe that it’s important to introduce the arts to young persons as part of their early formation as a way of developing life long social and personal skills. I am current as an artist by continuing to write for the stage, as well as by continuing to audition and perform professionally, and have worked on Broadway and national tours over the course of my career.
