#243 – E. B. Smith
E.B. has over twenty years of experience as a director, performer, coach, producer, and teaching artist in the worlds of theatre, print, film, television, and voice-over, with a mission to inspire and encourage passionate storytelling. His goal is to empower as many diverse voices as possible so that we may all learn from one another just how vast the spectrum of identity can be. As an artist of colour, he brings a special recognition of the power of experiencing one’s own history and world view manifest on stage as well as furthering connections to the stories of others. It is his mission, therefore, to facilitate the cultivation and cooperation of artists from every cross section of our society, and across artistic styles and traditions.
He received his training in the BFA Performance program at Ohio University, as well as two years at the Birmingham Conservatory for Classical Theatre at the Stratford Festival where he served for six years a text and acting coach and is currently in his tenth season as an actor.
