I was raised in a handful of states all over the US, most significantly Austin, Texas and Detroit, Michigan, though I was born in California and now live in Harlem in New York City. Supposedly to cover the rest of the country, I attended Duke University in Durham, North Carolina and have lived in New York for the past ten years. I have a BA from Duke with a self-designed major, an MFA in Playwriting from The Actors Studio Drama School at The New School University, and an MSPM from Boston University.

My work tends toward the darkly comic; I commonly write about misfits, displaced persons, conformity. I’ve been extremely fortunate to have studied with the playwrights I have, even fortunate in the order I received their tutelage. My first real training was with Erin Cressida Wilson and Peter Parnell, then James Ryan, Laura Maria Censabella, and Romulus Linney. I have been an active participant in the Actors Studio Playwright/Directors Workshop since its inception and won the Walter E. Dakin fellowship for playwriting at the Sewanee Writers Conference. My plays include Continuity, I’ll be Jonah if you be the Whale, Curtis Tucker Goes Out to Play, Kissing Louis, Samuel Christian, and am currently working on a three-play series that interrelate around Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Republics of the former Yugoslavia.

I also animated one season of the children’s TV show Kablam! on Nickelodeon and am an enormous soccer fan and active player. I'm married to a splendid woman who knows far more about theatre than I.
