I have years of experience facilitating workshops in creative writing and performance for participants of all ages from elementary through college students and even adult populations.  I have also been commissioned by various schools and organizations to tailor workshops to meet their needs.   I have served as an artist-in-residence with longer projects from two to six weeks featuring a community outreach showcase of the participants and their work. 


My passion is to help others discover the value of writing in meeting personal, creative, and professional goals and objectives.  I welcome the opportunity to work with schools, community, business and arts organizations.
