I Try to Practice What I Preach and Live by Example
In running Austin Conservatory of Professional Arts, I insist that all teachers be “professional working artists”.
In asking them to be so, I must hold myself to the same standard.
In teaching my students to be entrepreneurial, I live by example in founding my school.
In teaching them to make a living from their art, I continue to act, direct, write and produce.
Allow me to share my labor of love with you.
For this project, I have written the screen adaptation, cast the piece (voiceover), hired and fired, worked in intensive collaboration with all artists connected to the piece and have served as the principal vision and voice for this beautiful tale. I am directing this tale and have produced it up to date.
Please explore The Story of a Mother, an original adaptation from the H.C. Andersen tale by the same title.
Please feel free to share your thoughts. I would love to hear them.
