What’s your dream job? My current combination of creativity and coaching is a dream job! I have a steady income with a fun hobby – plus playing with kids and supporting their appreciation for movement/body awareness – and that supports my life as a working artist. My next dream job: I’m applying to work as a physical actor/clown for Cirque du Soleil.
What does your dream life include?
Travel, music, delicious food, wonderful family and friends, books, theatre, and love.
Besides money, how can people help you reach that ultimate dream life?
Share a hug. I’m here, living the dream!
Do you have dream contacts you’d like to make?
I’d love to chat with Carol Burnett, and I wish I could’ve chatted with Elaine Stritch. I’m grateful for the two times I’ve chatted with Bill Irwin.
Who would you invite to a dream dinner?
Every artist who’s inspired me in the past 30 years (we’d need a very large banquet hall) so I could personally thank them. Then thousands of balloons would fall from the ceiling and we’d all play and laugh and have a wildly good time.
What’s your dream trip?
I fantasize about visiting all the exotic beaches around the world (in Thailand, New Zealand, south France, Greece, South Africa, etc, etc, etc).
What’s the biggest dream you’ve attained so far in your life?
I’ve finally written a show about my grandmother, after years of thinking about it and wondering about it.
What’s the best advice someone has given you to attain your dreams?
A dear friend simply said, “You are enough.”
What’s your advice to others?
I really like the reminder that “everyone’s fighting their own battles, so be kind to one another.” My character’s advice in The Two-Step is “If you want to have fun, then you will!”
