In the simplest terms, acting has always been my safe place. It enables me to work through struggles, feel present in the moment, and in turn, feel heard and seen. My intention is to provide this same safe place to students. Artists don’t turn up at our doorstep to become ‘the greatest actor’, because those qualifiers are irrelevant. Each of us have precisely the tools we need to be great; what we need is the time and place to simply open our toolbox and play. By leading with empathy, warmth and courage, I hope to celebrate our shared passion for the art by inviting everyone to connect in a wonderful shared space.
