You found me!

I have stuff to show you. Mostly theatre stuff.  You can download excerpts of my plays if you like. Some are published. You can buy those online at Concord Theatricals, Playscripts, and Amazon. You can also reach out to the folks on my contact page. I don’t post TV samples here but you’re welcome to visit my IMDB page.

I was posting stories and missives here (and below) because I couldn’t stand the thought of a dead website taking up space and being dead. But I got a little tired of talking to myself and pretending it was you. So, I went back to focusing on TV stuff and plays. You can get still my posts via email if you like, though they’re irregular and probably a little annoying. YAY. Sign up here.

Otherwise, I dunno. I used to be chatty over on twitter but I shut my account down because um twitter is gross. Sometimes I post on insta? And one time I binge-posted micro-vids of myself in miniature on TikTok but I got bored so very fast. TBH most days I’m just skidding down rabbit holes in soft pants.

Hopefully I’ll have actual news soon-ish. Til then, I’d say sleep is a perfectly fine alt.


Stuff Now.

Corporate greed made me do it.

And by “it” I mean, dive naked head-first into an Olympic-sized pool of razor blades. Which is how it feels to be dealing with the logistical, financial, and emotional fallout of the colossal WGA work shut-down. In case you’re curious. Week three. In addition to having one’s career be snuffed out overnight for the foreseeable future AGAIN (ok, 2020 theater), nothing could have prepared me for the physical labor of pacing non-stop for four hours daily while battling near constant coastal winds with a giant poster board. Not to mention the writerly shame of failing to invent a witty sign slogan. Unshockingly, we’re not the only labor organization willing to risk everything for better working conditions and fair pay. People are tired of feeling broken and used. And yes, the…more…
