ACTOR AND SINGER
I work to visually and emotionally express complex human feelings in a way that is accessible and relatable to a wide range of people, allowing them, in turn, to process their own experience of reality. Emotional connection and empathy are necessary for human happiness and peace. In the absence of community, art is a way people can share emotions with one another, understand how to relate to others’ emotions, and learn how to build a more full life in relationship to others. This not only heals people individually, but allows for conversation that encourages a peaceful, understanding, and co-existing global community. In my work, I seek to explore the importance of emotional honesty and sharing with others in order to build relational bridges in an increasingly fragmented society.
