Okay, if you didn’t know this about me before, know it now: I am a giant nerd. I have been for most of my life – proudly, I might add. Heck, I built this website myself, and I’ve had it running in various forms for over a decade now. But I digress.
The following is the extended edit of the interview that appeared in the July 27, 2018, issue of the Greenville Journal.
As an artist, I owe almost everything to my teachers. Without them, I would be half the theatre artist that I am. Less than half, probably.
the world stopped spinning
would you notice
the sun never rose
would you listen
to the crickets
to the moon
This time of year is frequently a period of reflection: taking stock of what’s happened and what is yet to be. For a long while, I shied away from such reflection, because of personal issues with the season (although, who doesn’t have at least some issues with the holidays?). But this year, I find myself in a new headspace.
Last night, I did something that took me well out of my comfort zone. For the first time in ten years, I auditioned for a musical. After the surprise of getting a callback subsided, I grew a little excited about the idea of doing something I hadn’t done in a long time. Plus, Maegan was here to help me negotiate what to do for a musical audition — she’s got loads of experience in this field, after all.
