Victoria Woodard

Victoria is returning to directing after a two year hiatus. She is both excited and terrified to be here. Born and raised in Tampa, she teaches sixth grade language arts in the day time and hangs out with her four year old son after that. Likes: Shakespeare, the sharing of feelings, coffee. Dislikes: bad action movies, the deliberately obtuse, licorice. "You can be funny and kind or funny and cruel. The second one is easier, but the first one is worth it." - Justin McElroy
