I am first and foremost a collaborative, never dictatorial, director. I am also an actor's director, since that's where I started. My first focus is on the characters we create within the stories we tell, and I rely on the actors to help me figure out the nuances. Adding the other elements is always exciting, as we fill out an entire time and place through collaboration and research. Helming a show and seeing it come together successfully is a feeling unlike any other!
