Artistic Statement

Artistic Statement

I write plays. Often there are young people. Frequently, there is lyrical language. Sometimes there are surreal or magical elements to the stories. Occasionally they sit at a crossroads between science and metaphor. (I'm a nerd at heart.)

I'm interested in truthful storytelling, in finding the intersection of poetry and prose, and also in writing for non-traditional spaces. I've written plays for youth theater companies, written sketches for web and new media, and written narratives for themed entertainment - everything from the story behind a E ticket ride, to night time spectaculars, to street performances, to more traditional theatrical shows set in an corporate entertainment environment. All of it feeds and evolves my plays in unexpected ways.
