9Q7A7410I’m an actor, rhetorician, voice coach, and a follower of Jesus. It’s my passion to restore relationships between people, the world, and God through the “lingua franca”, the common language, of storytelling. Many forces create division, but stories can restore and heal.

This blog is my place to explore the symbiotic relationships between rhetoric, theatre, and faith, as well as provide some practical insights into these fields from the perspective of a working artist. My hope is that you leave with a new-found zeal for the delectability and joy of language, and use your own with a little more precision and presence.
