Artistic Statement

After working as a New York City playwright for many years, I am eager to continue creating new plays about important social issues that will resonate with national audiences. My previous writing includes a screenplay which was optioned; a musical with a member of the band Cake; over twenty stage plays resulting in fifty-three productions, workshops, and readings; and four published scripts. These experiences have provided an excellent foundation for continual development of new projects. I understand the great responsibility it is to voice the words of others; especially speaking for people who have been oppressed, silenced, or victimized by forces or voices with greater access to power.
