Where did you grow up? Do you have a theatrical family?
Tell us about your first car, first job as a teenager and first acting job.
Tell us about your acting training at University of Florida. What was that experience like and what has been an aspect of it that you find yourself incorporating into your career presently? Could you share a moment in vocal, aerial or dance training that caused you unease and explain how you worked through it?
What was your journey like to New York from Florida (living wise, career wise, personally; whatever you would like to share!) and could you offer some advice to those seeking a career in the city?
Could you tell us about your work with UglyRhino (I saw you were a director and actor there)? What was that experience like? Would you direct again in the future?
What is your favorite book, TV show, movie?
What are you most passionate about in your own life?
This production is so physical with its storytelling and as I was watching it, I found myself utterly captivated by a production with such few words. I felt like the true beauty of this story, is that we as human beings don't always know what to say, we just feel. Which is why I think ‘The Woodsman’ is one of the greatest productions I have seen in a very long time. How do you feel towards this production?
