Writing

I first came to theatre through writing, as part of my high school's inaugural "Page to Stage" program. In the summer of 2003, a group of students adapted and staged "Romeo and Juliet" set in Northern Ireland. That experience taught me how joyful it can be to tell a story.

While I enjoy working across genres and styles, I most often find myself working in the realm of comedy, and specifically political satire.
