What is your job on this show?
Playwright & Actor.
Do you consider yourself a writer who also performs, an actor who also writes, or something else?
What is funny is that if you would have asked me this question a few years ago, I would have answered with "I'm an actor who also writes". I consider myself both a writer and an actor equally!
What does solo performance do that can't be accomplished in a multi-actor play?
Solo Performers can take every part of the production and make it their own. They can tell you a story from their eyes and leave you with a number of memorable characters with their own perspectives on life.
In your own words, what do you think this show is about? What will audiences take away with them after seeing it?
This show is about tolerance, awareness, hope and truth.
For Election season: which American political figure do you think would like your show best, and why: Barack Obama, Ann Romney, Paul Ryan, or Hilary Clinton?
Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton, because the show is about a real person with real issues that most people can relate to.
If you had ten million dollars that you had to spend on theatrical endeavors, how would you use the money?
I would put the money into our education system and bring the Arts back to the schools. I don't know where would I be if it wasn't for the performing arts.
