I'm the artistic director of www.greenleafstudio.org. I enjoy being with my friends, directing theatre, scriptwriting, songwriting, singing, acting, reading, discussing theology, and a myriad of other more random pursuits. I recently graduated from college with a degree in theatre and a minor in business.
I'm married to Matt. He's my favorite.
My big passion is reclaiming the arts for Christ and using the stage as a medium for the message. I have some other business ideas too...but they're top secret. ;)
I decided to get more specific. :-)

It's good to have game plan for the next while. Mine seems to change semi-regularly but at least it's just slight directional changes as God leads.
The company has sort of been kick started in a rather strange fashion. I used to live in B.C. and recently one of my former students asked if she could come move out to Ontario where I live now and take her professional training with me. So plans are underway for that to happen next fall. It's going to be something of a ministry too as this girl has gone to school all her life and is very swayed by peer pressure in the wrong directions. Hopefully I can use that tendency for the better. Anyway, it's an exciting beginning and we'll just keep praying other professional dancers (or almost there dancers) in and see what God does.
Hello - good to hear from you!
What's new... ummm, I'm not sure you want to ask that question because the answer would be very, very long. Let me see if I can super-condense it...
1. Our family has moved into a new city and our property has a second building with large studio space.
2. I'm no longer officially in training so the next step (I believe... after much prayer) is to start a professional Christian ballet company. Things are already in motion for that and we're probably going on a small tour this summer.
That's the short form. Some exciting things have already happened and I look forward to starting a season of performing now.
How about you? How is teaching and everything else going? You're right - I think we need to be in touch a little bit more.
