MORE ABOUT ME
I keep doing theater because I enjoy telling stories and get a thrill watching them come alive on the stage. I believe live theater will come back after the pandemic passes and I keep writing and studying theater to be ready with new and refined material when it does.
WHAT I'M WORKING ON
After a recent Julia's Reading Room Zoom reading of my play SAINT UNDER GLASS I am busy rewriting passages with an eye toward future staging. I am also writing the libretto to a chamber piece on Emily Dickinson.
