WRITER & TEACHING ARTIST
(Interested? Read the abstract here):
My plays have been staged and performed in NYC, CT, and PA by wonderful actors like Hamish Linklater and Frank Wood; recently my play The Buddha's Wife was chosen for workshop performances by The Athena Project in Denver, CO.

"To write is to truly live..."
Unlike the Young Man in my play Doing Time, I have never equated writing with living. I have always, however, been in love with words and humbled by their power for good or for ill. I write to transform, uplift, and heal.
I was smitten by playwriting in college, and have pursued it ever since. Poetry hooked me decades later, and I wrote a poetic drama, The Marriage of Mom & Dad, for my master's project and commentary.
