Upcoming Events

Greeting to you and thanks for coming into my website. I hope you are well.
It is now the end of May 2022. As you know, It has been a very convoluted past 2.5 years. I have come to the conclusion that if I am alive and breathing on my own, that it is a miracle I should not take for granted. I have been doing a lot of performances via zoom throughout and more and more in person. I even flew to the United Arab Emirates to perform last September. This past April 30th I performed my new show, The Malaga Slave Ship at the Maine Maritime Museum. The show was created at Indigo Arts Alliance last October.
