About Me

Have you ever found yourself wondering what your ultimate goal or purpose in life is? I know I have. Ever since I did my first play as a kid, I fell in love with theatre. Theatre was where I found my true self and I knew that it was what I wanted to pursue. I always thought theatre was my calling in life but the more I immersed myself in theatre, the more passionate I became about the people who made theatre and entertainment happen.
Let’s be honest, being creative and living the life of an artist or entertainer isn’t easy and is often full of ups, downs, and inconsistencies. I’ve found that being an artist can be equally rewarding and heartbreaking. However, I have also found that finding things to inspire my soul, surrounding myself with positive people, and above all having faith that God has a plan and unique purpose for my life are what gets me through the good times and bad of my artistic journey.
Journey is a good word to describe my pursuit of theatre-or should I say creative endeavors. Once I graduated with a degree in theatre from Palm Beach Atlantic University, I worked a wide range of creative jobs including performing, teaching, and choreographing to the behind the scenes jobs of stage managing, wardrobe, and stage crew and then of course a variety of “not-so-creative” jobs in between. As most artists know, it usually takes more than one creative job to pay the bills. This was the case with me as I spent years running around working multiple jobs, constantly striving to find the “perfect job” to combine financial stability with my passion for theatre. Whenever I would reach a point where I didn’t know what direction to go in, I would find myself re-evaluating priorities and asking myself the age old question “what is my ultimate goal?” Regardless of what job I was working or creative avenue I was currently pursuing, the answer to that question was always the same: “I want to make a difference in the entertainment community. I want to be an encouragement to artists.” Answering that question has lead me here.
Regardless of where you are in your artistic endeavors, whether you are just beginning, trying to decide where to turn next, at the height of success, or even if you don’t consider yourself an “artist” and just need some positive direction; I hope that what you read will be an encouragement to you. I love how much artists can learn from each other and that is the goal here: to be inspired by quotes and encouragement from one artist to another.
