The perfect gift for your favorite freak
If you’re looking for my blog, go here. This is just the obligatory website.
I’m a writer and director, based in Chicago. Favorite scripted projects include Eye of the Sandman, a horror comedy, Earth to Margaret, an original musical that premiered at the Acorn Theatre, Oscar Wilde’s Picture of Dorian Gray, an adaptation commissioned for Flying Leap Radio Theater, and Infernal, a new play first written at the La MaMa Umbria International Playwright Retreat.
My prose and poetry have been published in After Hours, Swivel, Crawdad Literary Journal, and Hippocampus Magazine, who nominated my story “Toothbrush” for a 2014 Pushcart Prize. My films have screened at the Gene Siskel Film Center, Chicago Improv Festival, Midwest Independent Film Festival, and festivals across the world. I’ve told stories at This Much Is True, Here’s the Story, Tuesday Funk, Speak Easy Speak Hard, That’s All She Wrote, and… yeah, there’s a lot of live lit going on in Chicago right now.
The Chicago Reader was kind enough to praise my “wonderful ear for dialogue and the natural humor of family and romantic situations.” Wisely, they did not mention my personal struggle with the arc of a story, which is how Midwestern Robot came about.
