For years I’ve struggled to describe what I do given that I have a foot by day in one world and a foot by night in a very different world. I’ve tried to keep the two separate, believing that the inhabitants of one wouldn’t comprehend what I’d be doing in the other. If you find me on LinkedIn you’ll see a very different resume from the one here. A common thread started to emerge however - that of storytelling. The desire to tell a story, to present a perspective, to share an idea, is what drove me to tell my mom at age 5 that I would be an actor. That same desire is what drove me to write countless stories as a child, major in journalism at school, and find my way to the executive suites of high-tech corporations as a communications strategist.
When I saw “Equivocation’ by Bill Cain at Marin Theatre Company in 2010, a line in the play by the character of William Shakespeare (Shag) nailed what I believe to be the imperative of storytelling in our human experience and thus in the contribution I hope to make: "Each time an actor steps out on a stage, his very being proclaims 'I Am'. They - the audience - with us, for a moment, remember that they ARE. Our bodies become their souls made visible. What could they not do if, while in that god-like state, we were to tell them - the truth?"
