There is nothing that I'm more passionate about than breathing life into words and showing others how to do bring them to life as well. Nothing is more liberating than to really give yourself the permission to exist as another being, in another time and place. And in showing others the way, we learn more and more how to master this craft. As they say, you don't really learn something until you have to teach it.  I've been a teaching artist for an organization called Dreamyard for the past 14 years, which sends Teaching Artists, like myself, into the public school system to show the young ones the way.
