Actor and writer Jeff Burleson has performed for 25 years throughout the Central Plains; from Minneapolis to Albuquerque. His professional writing career has been primarily catalog-related and freelance blogging, but he also dabbles in fiction, screenwriting and as a playwright, he is a proud member of the Dramatists' Guild.

He graduated from The University of Central Oklahoma, under the direction of the incomparable Dr. Roberta Sloan and Dr. Robert McGill. Many of his dearest colleagues and fondest onstage memories are from the brief time spent in the area after college.

While in Oklahoma, Jeff also spent a decade performing with the state's longest running improv troupe, Everybody and Their Dog. It was there that he first began writing sketches, then screenplays for comedy groups. From there he moved to Dallas, where he spent almost a decade working on - nearly - every stage in the Metroplex.

Today Jeff is a fiction writer and a blogger for hire. He lives in the Miami area with his partner Olivia and their two dogs. And he occasionally updates his NPX. Very occasionally.
