Artistic Statement

Artistic Statement

As a playwright, life and leadership coach and Zen practitioner, I examine how we communicate, make choices, and live in each moment. Knowing that everything is always changing, how do we live a life of peace, justice, and equanimity? I hope audience members walk away from the theater asking how do I live a life that matters.

As a writer, I explore questions. What does it mean to be a creative person? How do we communicate? What do we choose to express and what do we hold close to our hearts? How do we maintain our independence and also be in relationships? What and where is home? I explored these themes in my play, "Take Down the Letters" and in the two books that I have written. My Zen meditation practice also informs my daily life and my writing.
