“Art convenes. It is not just inspirational. It is aspirational. It pricks the walls of our compartmentalized minds, opens our hearts and makes us brave. And that's what we need most in our country today.”
— Anna Deavere Smith

Although I cannot call myself an artist, I crave being around those who are. I am blessed with talents uniquely suited to supporting what they do, and in turn, they are my joy coaches and transformation agents. Epic theater literally takes my breath away, and compels me to confront truths I even hide from myself. Great architecture transports me to unimaginable heights, by creating space out of nothing. Abstract art opens all of my senses to the new and unknown, and inspires me to dream. And dance, in the rawest sense, requires me to look at the world upside down… and pushes me to put one foot in front of the other to effectuate change in our world. In short, I immerse myself in the arts more and more because I yearn at some level, like the Marchesa Luisa Casati, “to be a living work of art.”
