Since my first acting job the summer I graduated high school, the dozens of shows & hundreds of performances I've done, working with professionals & volunteers alike one thing I strongly believe---
Professionalism is not just about getting paid. It's respect for the work, for others, working hard & serving the play.
I co-created and produced "just do it - a themed reading and performance series" in NYC in the early 90s during the height of the performance art movement. I later produced the series in Denver & Charlotte.
