Encompassing both the physical and the intangible, these various works carry a single commonality — engagement with the audience. From large-scale art installations to effective stage designs, planning black-tie events and building mid-size festivals to travelogues written for a national audience, the work has always been about connecting people to places and to each other. The best works have often been the most challenging. All had their own lessons to teach, and for me, this is the greatest reward of all.
