Artist Statement:
I believe that Barefoot is a great place to nurture all my creative needs as an artist. There is a great sense of family and collaboration, which is the most important element is creating theatre and telling stories. The work produced with Barefoot has always been thought provoking and engaging, and leaves me with a great feeling of completion as a human being. I also appreciate the commitment to not only bringing to light lesser known and existing works, but supporting the new works of playwrights as well.
