"Every block of stone has a statue inside of it, and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it. I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free."
A Bit About Tim
I am a Brooklyn-based educator, theater artist, and researcher who works across the world to bridge cultural divides, promote civic engagement, and explore issues facing communities in innovative ways.
I believe that every individual and community has the arsenal of knowledge and tools to address the problems they face. Theatre and storytelling are two methods that I use with groups to unveil these resources and organize for social change.
My recent work includes using theatre to address mental health with teachers and psychologists in Palestine, improv with science students to encourage creative thinking thinking, dialogue with teenagers to talk about cultural heritage between right and left-leaning regions of the United States, storytelling with recently arrived Afghan refugee youth to re-learn how to imagine and play in the face of trauma, supporting dialogue between police community members in New York City with improvisation techniques, and more.
