Aloha  Update 2017
 
Right in front of  you there are signs springing up .... everywhere... look... listen... think!
Your voice can be heard, speak up, you are part of a greater whole.
 
Since last we spoke  . . . I still love and continue to share my knowledge teaching Yoga helping people relax, heal, enhance their potential daily. . .  and of course, I am still singing, dancing, writing and enjoying our beautiful world.
 

Biography
 
I began training with Randy Walker in the ballet classes held at Central Union Church, Honolulu Hawaii. What Ms. Walker endowed the class with above the perfection of the Cecchetti technique, was the awareness of the beauty of space, and an appreciation of the regal order we each possess. Through her training and some good fortune I was to become part of the Honolulu Civic Ballet productions of “The Nutcracker”, “Coppelia”, and “Gisele”. Each production refined my desire to reach the next level, first in grade and high school; then by obtaining my Bachelor of Arts degree in Dramatic Theater and Literature from University of Hawaii at Manoa.
 

After graduating, UH Professor Terence Knapp, renowned for his portral of Belgium priest and leperosy advocate, Father Damien, suggested I attend the American Conservatory Theater Congress [ACT]. My stated objective, when being interviewed for scholarships at the time was, "To become classically trained in Theatre Arts and thereafter have a career performing gaining experience and friends with each contract so upon my return home to Hawaii, I could build a classical performance arts center with resident companies for our local Artists."

After leaving ACT, I headed south to begin the adventure i.e."grabbing the brass ring". Needless to say the entertainment business has many wonderful paths, mine were to include stints both performing and in a business capacity for Walt Disney Company; performing in television, film and stage productions, acting, singing, or dancing for Universal Studios, ABC, CBS, HBO and Los Angeles Opera www.laopera.com  and local theaters. 

 
An invitation and scholarship to study at the British American Drama Academy www.badaonline.com  sent me abroad where I realized a childhood dream training with great role models from the posse of great classical actors, directors, stage combat, movement and improvisational teachers performing with: Royal Shakespeare Company, National Theatre, Theatre Complicite: Simon McBurney, Sheila Allen, Debra Warner, Paola Dionosotti, Tony Robinson, Mike Loades and many more including master classes with Sian Phillips, Ben Kingsley, Brian Cox, Alan Rickman, Fiona Shaw, Tony Hopkins and a host of others. [RSC:[https://www.rsc.org.uk];  National Theatre | [https://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk]; Theatre Complicite [http://www.complicite.org]. 


For a trade skill one of my four smart brothers, Patrick at www.vwtapes.com, taught me Audio Video production skills which lead to experience in sales and the recording, editing and duplication of CD's, DVD's, MP3's in the conference trade show sector. I utilize these skills as a narrator  recording audiobooks.

 
After working for years in Los Angeles performing, gaining experience and friendships it was time for me to reestablish myself at home in Hawaii and begin building a network for my dreams and eclectic skills.  ....  See you at the theatre, Aloha!
