I'm always up to something. I enjoy the quiet solitude of writing my own stuff and doing my own thing. But I also thrive on the energy of collaborations and discovering what the we can come up with that the I wouldn't have imagined.
Full disclosure, I get sh*t done. Ideas are great... but making them HAPPEN is I guess what you'd call my "creative process." The artists I've come to work with are not only visionaries – they are creators.
Shout out to Alonzo LaMont, Jason Tinney, Stevie Ray Dallimore, and more doers and shakers!

Author | Book In Progress
As an artist and playwright, I adhere to lots of superstitions. One is to not say too much about writing projects in progress. I'm currently at 150 pages on my first book-length publication. It's coming along word by word.
Actor | Stage & Film (even "exam" rooms)
Whether in a play or short film, I'm passionate about bringing a character to life. I'm also a simulated patient actor for graduate students becoming nurse practitioners – it's a rewarding way to use my art to help nurses prepare for real patients.
