also we should all do more to save the environment


I have done MULTIPLE things.

I've been a Dramatists Guild fellow and a librettist for the Kennedy Center's American Opera Initiative. I've also developed work with the Duffy Institute at the Virginia Arts Festival, The Yale Institute for Music TheatreThe Johnny Mercer Songwriters Project, The Johnny Mercer Writers Colony, Rhinebeck Writers Retreat, and Prospect's Music Theater Lab

I also have been a member of the creative team for a variety of new musicals in development, including Fly By Night (Playwrights Horizons and Theatreworks Palo Alto), There's A House (Vineyard Arts Project), and Loch Ness (Chance Theater, Anaheim). I help out with music and dramaturgy.

I also have a lot of background in teaching and performing improvisational theater, particularly musical improv. If that is ever relevant to anything you're doing, let me know.
