CIRCUS

Circus is where all my theatre training - acting, puppetry, clowning, movement and even leadership - come together. I have had the opportunity to work with some of the biggest names in circus and entertainment - Cirque du Soleil, Disney, filmmaker James Cameron - and literally traveled around the world thanks to these collaborations. 

Through imagination, the senses and emotion, circus is one way I collaborate to tell stories.

In October 2010, I flew to Port au Prince, Haiti to volunteer with Clowns Without Borders, months after the catastrophic earthquake in January. The Haitians I had the honor of meeting taught me the true meanings of human strength and tenacity; connection; generosity; dignity; creativity in all situations - no matter how devastating or unpredictable; love for our fellow human.
I went to Haiti with the desire to bring some joy and laughter, but, thanks to the unbelievable generosity of Haitian communities, I left with a deeper understanding of what it means to be a human being.
