MORE ABOUT ME
I feel most like myself in the midst of a group of people not like me who have gathered together to create something that we'll share with others. Through the combined minds of this disparate collection of collaborators, we find the way to tell a story to illuminate the world, for ourselves and others, even if it's just a tiny corner of it.
WHAT I'M WORKING ON
Always too many things because everything people do is interesting. At the moment, I have the big play I'm pondering, the little play I might be able to produce and in fundraising mode for a darkly comic film starring older women who turn the tables on those who discount them.
