MORE ABOUT ME
I feel most myself when I'm writing comedy. I'm proud of my dramas and my poetry but writing comedy gives me the most joy. There is something so lovely in knowing I've made others smile and laugh. I enjoy being a writing mentor at the Carnegie Center in Lexington, Kentucky.
WHAT I'M WORKING ON
I'm working on a full-length play about finding love and losing stereotypes.
