Who am I?

Melinda Beasi
Arts Educator, Writer, Director

I have been an actor, singer, blogger, editor, teacher, arts administrator, web creator, and more. I believe that storytelling in its many forms is the way that we as a species best share our most important truths and ideas. Stories make it possible for us to learn from each other and to discover how we overlap as humans. I’ll always be dedicated to storytelling in some form, though that form has shifted dramatically over the course of my life, and likely will continue to do so. Right now, I’m primarily a teacher, a director, and a writer/adapter, and I approach each with equal commitment, as complicated as that might be. This website attempts, perhaps clumsily, to represent some vision of the whole. It is, as I am, a work in progress.
