What are you doing to be the change you want to see in the world? People expect entertainers to be perfect right out of the gate; I’m creating space in my projects for people to challenge themselves artistically and join me on the stage in storytelling. Art, music and mediums of creative expression have immense healing powers for the creators, performers and audience—if we choose to confront those things. Many times, it is where we truly find ourselves and empower our best versions, shining a light in the darkness for our fellow humankind.
