I am a writer and creator whose work dives into the themes of women, work and family with a keen feminist slant.
Cutting my teeth as a Professor of Women Studies, I choose to create emotional theatrical experiences focusing on Women's Contemporary Issues.
My work synthesizes monologue, poetry, and the manipulation of time and space.
My question is always this: what is the best expression of this particular idea? I tell stories best suited for the audience's transformation.
(Please see previous pages for press and credits. However, here are a few new projects and recent updates.)
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 2018.
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, Howl Round, and several other feminist publications.
