Writer Statement

For over forty years, I worked as an urban and environmental planner. During that time, I wrote plays and screenplays on weekends, holidays and vacation. Life is short and in these dark and challenging days of the Trump Administration where diversity and freedom are being questioned, programs for the arts are being eliminated and attempts to censure writers are increasing, I had to do something. The late Carrie Fisher said "Take your broken heart and make it into art" and in the summer of 2017, I decided to do just that. I became a full-time playwright who supports vibrant, vital and provocative theatre aggressively. I believe that theatre is an essential element of the ongoing cultural debate that informs the citizens of a free society and If it is to survive, the unique, idiosyncratic voices of all individuals who write for it must be cultivated and protected.
