What was your favorite toy as a child?

My tree swing that I would ride and pretend I was riding dragons.

Sake Café on New Scotland and Sitar Indian Restaurant.

Are you involved in any creative projects you’d like to tell people about?

I am so happy to teach at Camp Shakespeare at Winedale each summer, a residential program in which we teach Shakespeare through performance in Round Top, Texas. I also love teaching the new MopCo Improv Youth Troupe! 

How do you prepare before MopCo performances?

Relax, talk, and laugh with other MopCo members. 

How do you prepare to teach MopCo classes?

Careful planning of a sequence of games in order of increasing difficulty! 

Would you rather travel to the moon or the bottom of the sea?

The bottom of the sea because swimming is a big hobby. 

What’s the best advice you ever got?

“Run around the couch.” – Don Wade, my dad. 

Are you involved in any charitable work you’d like to tell people about?

I help the Mathare Youth Talented Organization in Kenya get volunteers to come work with them. 

What’s your motto?

“We are here to awaken from our illusion of separateness.” – Thích Nhất Hạnh

 

 

Where would you most love to be, any day, any time?

Riding a horse, reading a great book, traveling, or doing awesome theatre. Maybe all at once.
