My family is full of loving individuals who are all very talented in some aspect of art; sewing, visual art, culinary arts, dancing…the list continues, yet somemembers did not take action to be able to express their art fully and perform their artistic dreams. There were also very tragic life circumstances that took them further away from achieving their dreams and I also believe that they did not know how to forge their own paths as artists.
The members who did not pursue their artistic dreams ended up in conventional careers, worked to pay bills and take care of their own growing families-a noble and respectable act.
I also wonder how much more could they have achieved for humanity if they had understood their own artistry and forged their own creative paths.
I decided to forge my own path as an actor, and also help other actors build their careers. I do the latter because I know what it looks and feels like when a very creative artist does not live up to their potential and purpose in life. There is a sense of sadness…something missing that they themselves cannot describe in words.
Performance Art is meant to help change the world. When we don’t act upon that artistic impulse within, we miss our opportunity to create our legacy. This is why I encourage other actors to do what they are here to do through my coaching, programs and services. I want actors to feel loved, supported, inspired and encouraged. I want actors to realize their dreams and do work that excites them.
We are all here to understand and perform our purposes and create work that changes the world. When we understand this and when we perform our talents and purpose, our legacy lives on to greatly and positively impact generations to come.
