"The COVID 19 pandemic has inspired me to fill a communication void in the performing arts community. I believe that the performing arts community is powerful and we need to use technology to bridge our physical divides in a scalable way. This website is my way to do that and have our voices heard, to educate the general public, and inspire each other and to make the world abetter place with the power of the performing arts. My mission is to use technology to empower the artistic community to connect in an authentic way."
