Additional Booking Notes
I can perform (and have) in any type of space or venue. If sound is needed, I do have my own head mic system; otherwise I can use what is available at the location.
Influences & Inspiration
I would have to say that Bill Irwin has had a profound influence over me as a performer; his body slides into the character he plays, and he does so with obvious relish. I also have been influenced by Anne Bogart and her books, in the way to build ensemble work and how to look at performance art.
