Director Statement

Writing is a gift and a passion that allows me to share the rich, fantastical inner world I inhabit. It also allows me to poke fun at some of the ridiculous idiosyncrasies of modern life. More than anything, though, writing and sharing my writing is about bringing some light-heartedness and humor to people I care about.
