Tracy McDowell is the world's first postmodern polymath, meaning she likes and aims to be good at a little bit of everything. She graduated from the University of California San Diego with a specialized degree she created in Storytelling. She works as a Feng Shui Consultant and teacher (integrative art and yoga), and loves and is so grateful for both. Her passions are almost infinite, but the short list is storytelling, the ocean, singing, playing the piano, and anything artistic: acting, singing, stand-up, painting, dancing, the list goes on. Her primary focus the past six years was crafting her storytelling but also included adventures with yoga-like her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training and teaching yoga for kids, co-running the Max Fischer Players theatre company, as well as stage managing and PA-ing for a variety of clown and burlesque related shows.

 

In the last year Tracy began to sing for people other than her friends and family and now consistently sings with a jazz band. She also sang more consistently during her time as an "Integrative Art Teacher" position as created for her to craft storytelling-centric curriculum for elementary school students. Her teachings were movement and music motivated while incorporating traditional visual art standards. Her classes aimed to ignite early interest a variety of artistic modalities with the overarching goal to encourage honest individual expression. The offerings are for all ages and aim to meet students were they are at. 

 

Tracy's long-term plan is to be the first female equivalent to Walt Disney but for live entertainment. She sees herself as establishing a successful acting career which will, in turn, allow her to finance her large scale "live children's entertainment empire." The mission is to expose children growing up in the digital age to live entertainment, as well as provide, balanced, safe spaces for children to explore, create, and learn.

 

Tracy's lofty goals and ambitions are rooted in her undergraduate storytelling research at UCSD, her four years of producing Andy-Kaufman absurdist theatre with friend and mentor, Michael Schwartz, as well as performing at countless open mic venues and farmers markets: playing the piano, conducting sing-alongs, and experimenting with performance art and stand up. 

 

She is exceptionally grateful for all the beautiful opportunities and lovely people who flow in and out of her life.
