“I believe that as a stage manager and a production manager I am an artist and a collaborator. I hope to foster and encourage in my students active engagement in collaborative processes, an open communication style where they speak the language of the actors, director, designers, and production team, and to guide them in the exploration of their artistry as they discover their unique style of facilitating and supporting a rehearsal and production environment that emboldens creative exploration and artistic risks. And in the process, I hope to learn from them as well.”
