Why do you do what you do?

I do what I do because I love it. Acting provides a place to play, it’s a silly and joyful creative outlet with powerful potential. Story telling acts as escapism, a place to learn, to confront uncomfortable truths and springboard conversations.

What’s your role in SparkFest?

My role in SparkFest is as an actor, playing the role of Cat in Cat and Her Whittington.
