Welcome!

Thanks for visiting! I spend a lot of my time writing plays, directing, and teaching theater in Philadelphia. You can find some of my work published by Playscripts, Brooklyn Publishers, Smith & Kraus, and Applause–yet a lot of the work I do is site-specific and commissioned for large groups of performers.

I love capturing rhythm of language, writing nuanced roles for young performers, and penning fresh adaptations of really old stories.
