About Me (The Quick Version)
As a lifelong creative with an eclectic grab-bag of experience & education, I’ve worked behind & in front of cameras, written scripts for screen & stage, penned articles & stories for magazines, covered scripts for studios & agencies, performed for live theatre audiences, trained in Performance & Improv Comedy at The Second City, & studied Producing for Film & TV at UCLA. These days, I focus my energy primarily on writing, directing, & producing for theatre & film, though I also enjoy writing fiction, acting, & practicing photography whenever inspiration & opportunity align.
Currently, I’m working in North Carolina for The Lost Colony Outdoor Drama as both Actor (doing the speaking role of Captain Arthur Barlowe & several ensemble roles) & Assistant Technical Director. The Lost Colony is performing its 84th season in 2021, making it the longest running outdoor symphonic drama in the US!
