I am a playwright, tea professional, and yoga instructor living in Chicago, and I'm glad you took time to stop by.
I hope you stay a while and leave refreshed, ready to take on whatever challenges you face.
I grew up in Indianapolis, birthplace of Kurt Vonnegut, and inherited his celebration of the mundane and the poetry of the bizarre. In addition to my Midwest roots, my interests in theatre and religions have broadened my art; I see my work as creating alternative realities in order to play within and expand our current one.
Along with working with words, I run my theatre company (NoMads Art Collective), as well as teach yoga, game, play music, and serve tea.
