Were your parents worried about your going into theater?

I actually have a job. I’m working at an education nonprofit next year. Hopefully I’ll be able to do theater without being poor.

What does the nonprofit do?

Math education for middle schools. The company’s called Reasoning Mind.

How did you find time to study? It seems that those theater projects are very time-consuming.

They’re good motivators. They keep you energized. Your adrenaline is up when you’re doing theater.

So you get your work done faster?

You sleep less and do more.
