"I call my approach The Extravaganza"

Music has had a gigantic influence on my creative practice, whether expressed in original poetry and music or performed monologues. I call my approach The Extravaganza, which reflects my desire to utilize as many creative disciplines as I can imagine. I bring in dance, acting, music, and singing into my performance piece;I want to move people, as far back in their seats (or minds) as possible.
