Live theater, all throughout history, has held a very important role in all societies and cultures. It has shaped the way we develop as people and how we process the world around us. Performing live theater is my love, passion, and chief source of satisfaction in this world. My goal is to make a living performing, sharing, and teaching the art of theater, and if I were to be able to make a living doing this, it would change the world in the way that it always has. The immediacy and physical closeness of theater results in a very human experience where the cast and the audience are able to examine life through the clarifying and magnifying lens of art. Audiences also get a chance to escape the difficulties of their daily lives and immerse themselves in a story, depending on the play. Both of these results are incredibly beneficial to people, and the combination of examination and escapism will continue to change the world. I hope that I can be a part of that change.
