MY PHILOSOPHY: 

LightER.  higher.  simpler.  more joy. 

I believe confidence and curiosity can be nurtured in such a way that talent will expand faster, farther and with more joy than we ever thought possible!

 A professional often has to be his or her own director, critic and teacher, so cultivating a playful, but tenacious, approach to technique is critical.   

Moment to moment, I challenge students and collaborators through humor and fortitude to push past insecurities and go beyond being dutiful. On my best day, I will have brought you to farthest edge of your talent, no matter how frightening, and had you laughing in the process. 

The following five-word creative credo I picked up in college continues to serve as the foundation of how I approach my work:  

Lighter: Let’s quiet the inner critic, lighten the load of any anxieties and give space for your creativity to expand. 

Higher: At its best a creative process can raise the frequency in all aspects of our lives.  To me, work that stems from imagination is as sacred as prayer and meditation, and it possesses many of the same benefits that bring us into joyful alignment.  I believe it’s simply not enough to make “great art” or pursue a goal, we must also know why we are doing so and move forward with commitment, confidence and character.

Simpler:  First instincts are usually the best, but why are they so hard to trust and so impossible to recreate? Let's master the tools of technique so your instincts can take shape simply and clearly.

More joy:  Self-explanatory! In the words of Dame Judi Dench, "You must take your work seriously, not yourself
