About Me

My photo

I dig jazz and single-malt scotch.  I write plays; I direct them too. I love STAR WARS more than is healthy. I walk my dogs every day, unless it's raining or terribly cold.

Caught

Theater caught me in high school.

That's when it took hold.

High School Drama Club was the real beginning. I got a principle role in the spring musical OKLAHOMA!

I helped design, build, and paint the sets. No one knew much about building them so I borrowed a book on stage craft from the library and read it.

I stole a white picket fence from some people down the road because we needed one for the production. What was I thinking? Obviously, I was single-mindedly focused on the goal of the production.

The play worked, I worked, and it changed me. The play closed on my sixteenth birthday. What bliss.
