Virtual Theatre & Music Technology Workshops
I have always loved sharing information, and seeing the spark of understanding in someone's eye. From 12 years of private flute teaching, to 3 years full of flowcharts, Gantt charts and process documentation as a software product manager, to video tutorials, walkthroughs and spreadsheets galore for the cast of an original *virtual* musical in 2020, I am on a quest to help people level up their skills and understanding.
I did a lot of experimenting with tech for virtual improv and scripted performances throughout 2020, after few years off of event production. I found my pandemic creative home at The Hideout Theatre in Austin, and co-founded the global virtual theatre tech community Tech Alliance of Distributed Artists (TADA!). I thrive where I can apply my music, technology, organizational and communication skills all at once - and the production and tech side of virtual theatre is that sweet spot for me.
I give workshops on virtual theatre production and tech with a focus on live virtual music performance, because I believe there can be a lot more virtual performance art than is currently being made. We don't need to wait until we can gather again to express ourselves creatively as musicians and performing artists, and the benefit of collaborating with artists from across the globe makes virtual performing arts that much richer!
Any upcoming public workshop dates will be posted here, but you can also use my contact page to ask about availability and pricing for private workshops and 1-1 consults.
