About the Author

Terry Fletcher is an opinionated skeptic, an open minded fool, a new teacher, an old student, a devil's advocate, a jack of all trades and a master of none. He graduated in 2012 from Lewis and Clark College with a bachelor's degree in Theatre and Philosophy. He loves the theatre for its community. He believes that art should be created everywhere for as cheap as possible. He yearns for a world where every street corner has a musician, every park has a play going on and every open wall is covered in a painting. He considers freedom of speech and expression a paramount value central to any society that wishes to ameliorate its woes. He lives for intelligent discussions on Facebook walls and bathroom stalls. He laughs every day and thinks that you should too. He grew up in a small town and lives in a big city. He relishes new experiences and cherishes situations that force him out of his comfort zone. He collects hats. He plays the piano. He is learning to juggle. He is employed to teach math to the middle school students of West Harlem. He tries to teach them life lessons. He is usually happy if they do not kill each other. He hopes to experience as much of life as he can and find happiness in the greatest tragedies. He wishes to be remembered. He values commitment to strong specific choices in acting, life and sentence structure.
