Anything else you’d like to share with us?
I live a very simple, and complicated existence. If that confuses you, imagine how i feel. I am fortunate enough to love my job, in all it’s unconventionality. It’s been the only constant in my life for a while now and allows me to stir emotion inside others. Which in turn stirs emotion inside me. I never feel more alive than when I’m on stage being reacted to.
