About Me (The Quick Version)

I am a lifelong creative with an eclectic grab-bag of experience & education to rummage through for tools & inspiration. I’ve worked behind & in front of cameras, written scripts for screen & stage, penned articles for travel 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 on writing (fiction & drama), photography, theatre & filmmaking, though I always leave room for other artistic pursuits.

Currently, I’m working as Assistant Technical Director & Ensemble Actor for The Lost Colony Outdoor Drama, which is entering its 84th season in 2021!
