I met the Michaelis Family three years ago, while I was assistant directing “All My Sons”.  As the show went into production – Missy, Brad, and Carly came to each and every show.  It was absolutely amazing to see such raw support and foundation for their student.

The next year, I had the opportunity to direct “To Kill a Mockingbird”, where Carly and Alex were both cast in the show.  It was the most incredible honor of my life to watch these two beautiful humans grace our rehearsal stage, each day.  As I watched, tears would flow down my face with eyes of wonder and a grateful heart.

The core of this collection is my heart for the Michaelis’s - burning with love, increased admiration, pride and total awe.   

Forever, I am changed by this beautiful family.
