Founder & CEO
I have been incredibly fortunate in my life to never have to experience the challenges that face a lot of the youngsters, and families, with whom we are of service to. The difficulties that I observe in the world every day are tremendous for many. Yet, it is my thought that through the Arts, we can help introduce youngsters to knew experience that may plant a seed, create a dream, or intellectually stimulate them – and, maybe, just maybe, make a difference in a youngster’s life.
With that desire in my heart, I preside over Arts & Entertainment 4 DFW Youths. We are all looking to make a difference in our world and I believe that by focusing on the kids, and introducing them to the Arts, that A&E4DFyouths is making a positive impact in their lives. The Arts can bring about creativity in youngsters, provide confidence, teach youths about problem solving and perseverance, and help them to learn how to focus; the Arts can influence non-verbal communication, support constructive feedback, collaboration, dedication, and teach youngsters about accountability.
Our overall objective is to help bring about more in-school and after school programs where youngsters can get involved with the Arts, whether it be with music, acting, dance or any other discipline of the Performing Arts. It is known that the Arts help youngsters to develop skills that will enable them to be better students, and enhance their lives as they prepare for their careers, and throughout life.
