In some ways I'm a pioneer. I know my limitations -- I can't deny them -- but I really have great parents who try to let me do as much as possible, and I've had people encourage me throughout my life, so I've never let it stop me, at least in theater.

I'm a quadriplegic. I can move my arms; I just can't use my hands.

The Mud Creek community has been very nice and welcoming. Very quickly, they treat you like a family. I feel like I'm part of it, and I've only been here for a couple of months.
