Welcome! Are you in Minneapolis? Coming to Minneapolis? Pillsbury House Theatre just mounted a FANTASTIC production of THE CHILDREN. It's a retelling of Medea (with puppets!) and runs through October 16.

AS A PLAYWRIGHT, I've been fortunate enough to have work produced at theatres from Boston Court to B Street to Open Fist to Naked Eye. 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 -- not to mention 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.
