As a storyteller, I share the deepest and most personal pieces of my life on stage. It helps me to share with others because I don't feel so alone when I invite people to see what this all looks and feels like for me. I am currently working on creating a show about clinical depression. My goal is to present this show to the public with all of the truth, struggle, pain, humor and honesty that I have to give. I hope that by reaching as many people as I can with this story, I can do my part to begin a conversation which I believe is the way to bridge the distance and fear that many people face when they wish to help themselves or others. I am going to work hard and do my part to eradicate the stigma around this illness and to offer people a safe and inclusive place to begin understanding and to feel understood. I would like to offer tickets to this new show on a sliding scale basis with all proceeds going to the Portland branch of NAMI, The National Alliance for the Mentally Ill. I am asking for your support to pay for venues, production and marketing costs, most of which I can not afford to pay for myself. My pledge is to offer my very best and to speak loudly and often on behalf of so many who can not find the words. My mission is give some relief and understanding to those people who, like me, are living with clinical depression and to offer a valuable resource to those who are struggling to understand and support someone who is living with this and who desperately needs them. I want to start a conversation because conversations like these can change the world and save lives. Honestly.
Thank you for your support and for spreading the word about this endeavor. My whole heart is in.
