About

Would you rather see your experiences as obstacles to work through, or would you rather see them as invitations to play and inspirations for your creativity? If you prefer the latter, then let’s get more acquainted! 

Play It Out Loud provides pathways for each of us to discover how to participate with and play through our life experiences in service of enjoying each moment, connecting with playmates and taking inspired action toward our desires and goals. We engage in practices that promote presence, generate connection and inspire play. Our awakened creativity allows us to collaborate and step into new possibilities together.

Improv has been my go-to practice on stage and off, officially, since 2015. Through this journey, I discovered how much easier it is to use my whole self to transform my experience through play, rather than struggling to “figure things out” with just my brain. I enjoy applying the fundamental improv principle, Yes, And, to my life. Play with me and I’ll invite you to say YES to what you are creating in your life and to acknowledge yourself as a powerful creator. Then I’ll inquire, “Hmmm…what’s the AND? How can you improvise with what’s here to inspire and create what you really want?”

I’m a certified Hendricks’ Big Leap Coach and facilitator (http://www.hendricks.com) and I’ve also been practicing traditional theater improv since 2015, graduating from Seattle’s Unexpected Productions School of Improv (http://www.unexpectedproductions.org). I created Play It Out Loud to inspire and empower people to play in service of opening to and creating new possibilities in their lives, communities and the world – knowing full well that play is essential for evolution.

I facilitate playgroups and playshops that mix improv exercises and Hendricks transformational tools to engage our body’s intelligence for maximum fun and full expression.

Celebrate what is. Engage with the possibilities.
