"Just tell the story."

What really does it for me has always been a good story. My best experiences have always been when I work with a great ensemble - fellow actors, writers, directors and designers, to convey an experience to the audience and have them be a partner in sharing that story.
This is where my heart has always been. The theatre suits my midwest work ethic. I've been on one stage or another for longer than I'll admit.

My theatre skills I have adapted to work the big and small screen.  Essentially camera work is the same as proscenium stage work - only with the size and distance changing by the second
