It Gets Better from Memphis on Broadway

Hey All! 
I am so proud to be part of this video with the amazing cast and crew of "Memphis."  

Being a theatrical, outgoing individual in a conservative Pennsylvania town wasn't the easiest thing in the world.  Spending all of your energy trying to conform to other individual's definition of "normal" was frustrating to say the least. The best thing I ever did was throw off their definitions, move to the big city, and start discovering who I am.   Now, this enlightening voyage of self discovery hasn't always been easy.  I've made many a mistake and learned, sometimes on multiple occasions, from them.  But, that being said, I know I am far more content with my life now than I would have been following the more traditional, conservative path.

So, here's to self discovery and accepting who you really are.

It gets better.
