About Me: Mark Sage Hamilton

About Me: Mark Sage Hamilton

I came across this Apache Prayer and wanted to share it with all who visit my site: 

May the Sun bring you new energy by day. 

May the moon softly restore you by night. 

May the rain wash away your worries. 

May the breeze blow new strength into your being. 

May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life. 

More about me: 

I believe in the power of independent journalism and do so by supporting various print, online and on-air formats. 

My Career

I am a classically trained actor having had the privilege of performing roles ranging from Shakespeare to August Wilson, and have appeared on the stages of major regional theaters.

One of my career highlights includes winning a New York Theatre Festival award for the solo portrayal of baseball legend Satchel Paige in the play “A Pitch from Satchel Paige”.

In addition to using my talents for the stage I have used my acting skills as a Standardized Patient at area medical schools. This experience has not only broadened my ability for various character portrayals, but also deepened my compassion toward those with life experiences which differ from my own.

I have portrayed patients in the following scenarios:

  • Cardiac Emergency Room
  • Psychiatric Ward
  • Recipient of Bad News
  • Alcoholic in Need of Counseling
  • Heroin Addict
  • PTSD

  • New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Sedona, Arizona
  • Santa Fe, New Mexico

  • Mandela's Way by Richard Stengel
