Presenting at SETC This Week

At the Southeastern Theatre Conference (SETC) in Chattanooga this Saturday, March 7, I will be presenting a paper I wrote entitled "The Effect of Acting on Actors". The paper was selected as the graduate winner of the Young Scholars Award. I am excited to share this topic with others, as I think it is so important for us to start understanding more about how our characters shape our character, and about how to thrive as healthy actors, doing great work while leading rich lives.
