I am fortunate enough to say that I have no memory of a time where my days did not strongly revolve around the love of Jesus and the wonder of theatre. Looking back on every elementary "All About Me" poster, dream journal, or fun fact notecard I always knew I wanted to be an artist. There was one brief period where I thought maybe I would be a teacher or a doctor, but at age 8 I learned about Broadway and I was sold. 12 years later I see that Broadway isn't the only place to perform and that Jesus loves art just as much as, if not more than, I do.
In my 20 years I have studied under many directors, vocal coaches, choreographers, and other artists. All have contributed to my theology of theater which is this: that those who have the privilege to know have the obligation to do. We were created to create, and I know no better form of worship that to proudly display the complexity of the human race well and in full truth.
Being a part of theatre has allowed me to see the importance of mistakes, the necessity life holds for risks, and the beauty of our minds and emotions. I also know full well the importance of gaf tape and mini flashlights. Lord willing, I am going to do this forever; it only gets better from here.
