My brother Dr. Paul and I have been having awesome video conversations about the parallels in his work as a sports performance psychologist and my career in theater. 

💡Light Bulbs are going off!💡

After only a few chats, I started seeing a change in how I live my day-to-day life as a freelance actor, director and teacher. I think I can confidently say that Paul is learning some “lessons from the stage” as well.

Check out the Introductory video below and give us a “like” and “subscribe” for fun conversations about motivation, mindfulness, focused attention, deep practice, showing up in a one-of-a-kind way, learning to love risk…and oh so much more.

The day will begin with a Cabaret Master Class from 3pm ’til 5pm. Then there is a wine & cheese reception at 5:30pm and finally, showtime at 6pm. All ages are welcome.
There are two ways to participate.  You can attend both the master class and show (class participants will be invited to perform part or all of what they worked on in class) for $15, or you can just come for the reception and show for $10 – have some wine and cheese, and then watch your friends ham it up!
