In a time of Covid19 Pandemic I am able to move some performances and workshops to an online virtual format, or socially distanced. While not preferable it allows for a level of connectivity, refreshing social time and for me to work a little bit at the craft I love. I offer both performance and workshop in this Zoom portal format.
