Playwright + Screenwriter

Poetry is a dirty habit.


My Work

I write plays, films, TV shows, and the occasional love note.

About Me


I started writing plays when I was 5 years old and haven't stopped. That tells you everything you need to know about me both as a writer and as a human being.

I grew up in the woods of middle Georgia with 33 dogs and almost no running water. After studying acting at the University of Georgia, I got the hell out of middle Georgia and ran away to New York where I still live (and where most days I have running water).

An internship at Manhattan Theatre Club threw me headfirst into the pond of new play development, and I wrote my first play in New York in the patrons' lounge at the Samuel J. Friedman theatre during Act One before serving wine and nuts at intermission. 

I finally claimed the word "playwright" after finding a mentor in the incomparable Tanya Barfield, and after several years of study with her and many other generous playwrights who encouraged me, I also started writing films and television shows when stories started coming to me that couldn't be told on the stage alone.

I recently graduated from the Juilliard playwrights program taught by Marsha Norman and Chris Durang and am currently working on too many projects at once, happy as pig in shit as long as I'm sitting in a cafe or a library or my little desk at home, lost in worlds of my own making.
