Writing

In addition to performing and directing, I also have a strong passion for writing. I've written scripts for plays, musicals, television, and films, as well as lyrics and fiction/poetry. My first completed script was a libretto for a brand new musical titled All's Fair: A New Musical. I also wrote the lyrics and some of the music. I wrote a short play for a 24 Hour Play festival, titled "Dawn of the War of the Planet of the Vegans". Most of my plays and works-in-progress are verse dramas, telling epic stories with the same scope of Shakespearean plays. I've also adapted many Shakespeare plays for stage and screen. I've also written several television pilots, including a 30-minute comedy called Starting Up, and a 60-minute fantasy/drama called Children of Avalon. Both of these scripts are in national pilot competitions.
