Welcome to the Artist's Huddle blog!

Greetings, friends new and old! 

Welcome to the Artist's Huddle blog, the space where I'll explore some of the questions and topics that I find most exciting, perplexing, and important for us as 21st century artists and human beings. These are the questions that I ask myself, and also the questions I hear my friends, colleagues, and clients asking. I hope this blog will give you a sense of who I am, what interests me, and the sensibilities and priorities I bring to my work as a performer, teacher, writer, coach ... and whatever else I find myself doing at the moment.

One of the reason I started Artist's Huddle is to build a very broad platform for my research and ideas, so that I could invite others into the conversation. One of my passions is to make connections between disciplines and ideas that we might not ordinarily connect. You'll see me talking about topics like depression, burnout, and trauma; meditation and yoga; financial well-being and relationship development; and of course, how these affect creative people in particular. I'm constantly reading, researching, and learning; sharing my findings with others is a natural outgrowth of my own learning process. 

Thank you for reading and for joining me! And don't forget to join the Email Huddle, so you won't miss a bit of what's happening both online and in person.
