Becoming professional

In 2014, after six years of storytelling as a hobby, I was accepted to be on the Texas Touring Roster of Artists curated by the Texas Commission of the Arts. During the 2014-2015 school year I went on a tour to eight low-income elementary schools in Temple, TX, sponsored by the Texas Commission of the Arts and the Target Foundation.

Community Outreach

Family Reading Bonds: In Greenville, MS, I was the primary storyteller for three storytelling programs developed by the Greenville Arts Council and the Mississippi Humanities Council. In each program, we had families read several children's books at their home and then we got together once a week to see a performance and discuss of one of the stories.

Community Theater: Between 2014-20I5, I played the role of Gaston in Beauty and the Beast and Prince Charming/Wolf in Into the Woods at the Delta Center State.

Other Notable Events

  • In 2009, I was selected to be an emcee for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) National Youth Gathering. It is a five day event that brought over 26,000 youth from across the nation to New Orleans.
