Welcome. Here's a bit about me.

AS A PLAYWRIGHT, I've been lucky enough to have my work produced at theatres from Boston Court and Pillsbury House to Open Fist to Theater Latte Da. I've had readings of plays at theatres like Hartford Stage and Manhattan Theatre Club. I've been commissioned by Hartford Stage, was a two-time finalist for the Heideman Award, and a finalist for The O'Neill. A few of my plays are published and can be found at Samuel French, Playscripts, Amazon, and iTunes.  

AS A SCREENWRITER, I've written over a dozen TV pilots and screenplays -- having developed projects with ACME Productions, Tagline Pictures, Mandalay TV and more. In my spare time (of which there's very little), I've contributed essays to HowlRound magazine, volunteered as a mentor for LGBTQ youth at About Face Theatre, and even once directed WILLY WONKA at my son's elementary school. I will never direct again.

AS A TEACHER, I've taught TV writing, screenwriting, and playwriting at Northwestern University, Emerson College, Hampshire College, and Carleton College -- where I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of Cinema and Media Studies.
