MORE ABOUT ME
Disappointment is a constant in a creative's life. More specifically, rejection can feel like your heart has been ripped out of your chest, kicked around, and thrown in a dumpster. Starting out as an actor, I have not been cast in many roles that I really wanted. I never knew rejection until I began to write. Putting your soul into a script, sending it out in the world and letting complete strangers decide its value and worthiness is a tortuous endeavor. Why in the world would I subject myself to this? Why do I open the emails that most likely have bad news? Because I have to. I have stories in me that just have to come out. I write for myself, and I do love when others like my stories, but creating the story is my reward. Now, I may be disappointed I missed out on an opportunity, but I keep my eyes to the future.
WHAT I'M WORKING ON
I have a few projects I am working on. Three full length plays: The After, My Mother, the Serial Killer, and Emergency Protocol Camouflage. I am also working on a script written specifically for Covid times that will be filmed using Zoom and other formats. Its title is Eyes to the Stars.
