"My teaching is largely inspired by an improvisational theatre mantra: "Let Go, Play Big, Notice More". For me, these three directives offer a rich foundation that enables personal growth, radical creativity and heightened awareness. I aim to foster environments in which students can work together to generate experiences that yield discovery. I work to transform students' discoveries into knowledge through proposing provocative questions for written reflection and discussion. By empowering students with tools and strategies to self-construct their learning journey, students can learn in a way that is specific to their personal curiosities and motivations."

"Above all, I am adamant that explorations in the studio can and should apply to everyday life. How are we becoming better friends / citizens / humans through this work together?"
