I had an incredible opportunity to speak to students at California State University-Northridge in Los Angeles today. I gave a talk about my works as a deaf filmmaker and discussed how I got into filmmaking, and I offered some helpful advice and suggestions. It was great to meet all the professors and students. I feel lucky to share my voice with others.
On April 5 (Thursday), I will give a talk to college students about my works as a Deaf filmmaker (open to the public).
On April 6 (Friday), I will give a free workshop to deaf artists about brand awareness.
Lastly, on April 7 (Saturday), I will perform at the deaf festival! Please see the flyers below.
I was asked to create and develop three workshops for students at New Mexico School for the Deaf in Santa Fe, New Mexico. They are learning to write poetry over a course of months. Since I am known to be an ASL poet and performance artist, the school asked me to be involved for the Final Day on March 25.
I created a few videos along with a detailed workshop curriculum for the students. My curriculum focused on the elements of performance and using those to analyze and perform poetry.
The workshops were a huge hit and the students greatly enjoyed them! Big thanks to Shira G. for inviting me to participate.
I will present a free workshop on behalf of the St. Louis Fringe Festival. I will teach participants how to perform and tell stories from different perspectives. I will demonstrate performance techniques used with body, voice and mind. There will also be other free workshops on site including (but not limited to) Japanese drumming, yoga, clowning, singing, and martial arts! No acting or theatre experience is necessary.

Workshop is open to all. Hope to see you there!
