Playwright Bio

I am a New York-based playwright whose work ranges from probing, naturalistic drama to over-the-top farce and satire and even to musical comedy. No matter the genre, my goal is the same: an audience genuinely moved to laughter, anger, mourning, revelation, self-questioning. When the curtain drops and the house lights come up, I want people feeling something they weren’t when they first took their seats. Having studied psychology, philosophy, creative writing, and acting, I'm obsessed with the human condition; character development is always top of mind in whatever I write.


While my production history is admittedly thin/light/[insert euphemism here], my full-length drama, Bless You, was a semifinalist for the 2014 Stanley Drama Award. In 2012 I was a semifinalist for The Lila Acheson Wallace American Playwrights Program at The Juilliard School.
