About Me

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.

Actually...


Part of my course of study at Brown includes cognitive science. Why is a playwright studying cog-sci? To prove scientifically why theater is an essential part of a growing human brain.

An active theater has been a component of all great societal movements.

I intend to prove why -- with dazzling science.

Theatre in schools is an elitist expense

It's about time someone put a stop to the notion that theatre programs are essential. They are, in fact, a detriment to the social framework of an academic curriculum, and a drain on the morals of our children.

Children should spend more time learning essentials like reading, writing, and pertinent job skills like television repair or creating smarter computers, rather than useless artsy blather. Plays are only writen to seduce our young people into thinking they are better than everyone else, and this is just plain hooey.
