My father was a passionate amateur actor in a community theatre outside of Albany.  With his encouragement I penned a few early scenes and plays while homesteading in Vermont after college.  Based on this work I was accepted to the MFA playwriting program at the Yale School of Drama.  


Instead of finishing the program I moved to the East Village where I had my first plays produced at Playwright’s Horizons, Theater Genesis, and Ellen Stewart’s La Mama ETC.   I then began to write short fiction as well, leading me to the MFA program in fiction at Columbia University.  Shortly after completing the program I co-authored a children’s book, The Kooken.  A bit later, inspired by my Corgi, Ned, the Kooken’s illustrator and I collaborated on a cartoon series called NedToons.


Over the past few years I have refocused on play writing.  As a member of Emerging Artist’s Theatre (E.A.T.), I have had several plays produced both by E.A.T. and other theatres in New York and on the West coast.    


I have also delved into television writing—having conceived a satirical series based on American historical, and occasionally apocryphal, characters.
