I stepped away from acting for a while in the late ninties and started developing and producing theatre focusing on new plays that transform and empower diverse communities. I believe that, at its best, theatre transforms – inspires understanding of the rich complexity of the human experience, gives voice to the silent, and dignity to the dispirited. Through the creation, production, and performance of theatre we chart a passage to grace – in ourselves, in others, and throughout our community. As an actor, a person and as a producer these values act as my compass .
