I am a writer and creator with a keen feminist slant who dives into the personal and political aspects of women’s lives: their work; their families; and their friendships.
I have been comissioned by theaters in the United States, Europe and South Africa to create thought provoking live entertainment.
(Please see previous pages for press and credits. However, here are a few new projects and recent updates.)
My short feature “The Exchange” is currently in post production and will be released in 2020.
My play “Ojalá” was optioned as a screenplay.
My play "The Maid's Daughters" was a finalist at Eugene O'Neill Theater Conference in 2016 & 2017.
My Television pilot "Playing with Fire" was a finalist at The Orchard Project Showrunners Program in 2019.
I recently received mentorship from Jerry Rees in the area of trans-media, virtual reality, and themed based storytelling for theme park and museum attractions. Under Mr. Rees's guidance, I created a theme based, experience entertainment virtual piece for kids.
I am the author of the children’s book “The Prayer Box.” Available everywhere but I would love you to buy it at "Once Upon a Time." America's oldest independent children's bookstore.
I’ve been featured in Ms. Magazine, HowlRound, and several other feminist publications.
