For as long as she remembers, Sarah French has been interested in how people play. She created OOFA-MIAOW to extend this research, and share and promote discoveries with larger communities. Her approach to teaching is inspired by her adventures as a social worker, psychotherapist, English language teacher, elementary school teacher, TV actor, clown and clown teacher, museum docent, recorder player, and more. Since 2013, she has facilitated clowning playshops with Vivian Gladwell (nosetonose.info). Sarah has an MSW from NYU. She lives in Brooklyn, NY.
