Writer Statement

My shows explore subject matters that are in the headlines, but I make sure they are told in a tangible level that not only touches the audience, but also causes the audience to think about their life and life choices. I believe the future of TV & Film will depend on tangible stories with world themes. I believe that not only will theatre reach more audience members in the near future, but it will be TV & Film that isn’t afraid to say “This is what’s wrong in the world and this is how you can fix it!”
