I tell stories by manipulating moving images, puppets, text, actors, inanimate objects, and interactive technology. By combining my life-long passion and more than two decades of experience in the art and business of making theater, video, music, and fine art installation, I aspire to create original works that are multidisciplinary and technologically inventive. My interest is in combining the simple, traditional forms of storytelling with that of cutting-edge, interactive media technologies, in order to engage the imaginations and hearts of a twenty-first century audience.
In the past I've founded and run a theater company and a video production company. I love sweeping a bare stage, have a passion for cooking, and can juggle multiple projects and objects. I excel at directing children, animals, and puppets. Video I shot in Alaska while on my honeymoon.
My work tends to center around themes of control, power, finding one’s self, family, and the supernatural events that occur when inanimate objects come to life. I am always in search of finding and creating that magical moment that takes an audience’s breath away - like when a simple piece of cloth is transformed by a live actor into a living, breathing character, which then interacts with a high-definition, three-dimensional projection.
I consider myself not just an artist, but an entrepreneur at heart, who dreams of creating worlds that do not exist.
