My hope is to help others connect with their inspired ideas, whether they hope to pursue them recreationally or professionally." Themes of this workshop include: Team building, Performance, Creative Writing, Contributing to a Creative Process, and much more.

In addition to writers and performers, ideal participants will be creative challenge-seekers looking for a fun, safe environment to try something new and who are seeking satisfaction through self-expression and confidence in communication.
