Artist Statement

My seemingly diverse creative pursuits - showing-and-telling community stories, creative writing and journalism, teaching and consulting - actually support one "four-eyed" mission: to inform, instruct, intrigue, and inspire. Moreover, offering live and electronic productions, integrating traditional and new media, and getting listeners talking opens two more "eyes": interactivity and viral infectiousness.
