Why I Teach: “I teach because I firmly believe in education as an effective and transformative medium that fosters empowerment, self-exploration, and investigation of the nexus between the individual and the greater human experience. My approach focuses on experiential mastery of individual tools that the actor can fuse together in their own unique process which fosters authentic and actionable choices within the space and values effectiveness of the individual’s interpretive efforts.”
