ARTISTIC LEADERSHIP

NONPROFIT CO-FOUNDER / PRESIDENT

From April 2009 to June 2013 I served as the Creative director, Executive Director and Board President of Vita Arts. Vita Arts was a Seattle-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to transforming lives through the power of artistic expression.

In my time at Vita, we partnered with The Orion Center/Youthcare Seattle and the Phoenix program of the Eugene juvenile justice system to reach at risk youth. I co-founded the company and created its flagship Integrated Workshop event structure, which combines profound theater with art lessons taught by the performers. I also wrote and directed the shows and fundraisers at Vita Arts, and taught aerial circus and music.
