Artist’s Statement

My core vision is to illuminate the ecstasies and longings of the human race through storytelling and oral tradition. With a particular fondness for telling humorous and poignant stories from my own life, I strive to touch the tender heartbreak lying dormant in every spectator. I am inspired by the pedestrian simplicity of Spalding Gray and by the mythic vocalizations of Roy Hart. I am cultivating an aural expression that inspires people to recognize the mythic dimensions underlying their daily routines, which could mean a crack in my voice that shocks the nine-to-five businessman into noticing his inner minimum wage employee or a sonorous command that empowers the barista. But most of all, I want my stories to help people re-see the parts of life that evoke shame and somberness as parts of life that can also evoke rapture and reverie.
