In today’s episode of Willful, David Mackett, an actor and former biologist, talks about:
• the first time he held an audience spellbound
• Career direction: consult with your 10-year-old self
• That freeing feeling when your parents “get it”
David is the co-founder of Toronto’s Fly on the Wall Theatre. This fall, the company is mounting the Canadian premiere of Conor McPherson’s Dublin Carol. Go to FlyOnTheWallTheatre.ca for details and tickets.
Willful is the web series that tracks how artists and creative entrepreneurs work, thrive and survive. We used to interview one artist a week, then post five three-minute snack films from that interview on YouTube every day. Then we got realistic. Now we publish a new episode every sometimes, to borrow Tim Urban's digital strategy for his wonderful blog, Wait But Why.

Finally, thank you so much, Mr. Greg Garson, for hosting us at The Merchant Taps & Tavern, and for introducing us to David. Garson, you know everybody worth knowing!
