Writer of fiction and drama, originally from San Jose, California, and currently living in Santa Cruz for the past two plus decades. My style is heightened realism, and my work is focused is on the Bay Area with universal themes. There are many reasons why I write, but the main one is enjoyment. In 2016 I began producing and directing some of my short plays at Community Television of Santa Cruz as live broadcasts. My more recent works are the novel Redwood Summer (a story of 1990 San Jose) and the two act stage play Dermalogic which received a Zoom performance hosted by Theater for the New City’s “On the Air” series. Recently I helped to write a screenplay with filmmaker Hilary Davidson called TWENTY for Nineteen85Films, and I’ve completed a screenplay about a young man’s final days in Santa Cruz before he escapes that I’ve titled Leaving Paradise (it’s gained some notice on the Film Freeway). In April 2022 my one act comedy Funhouse was performed live by Manhattan Repertory Theatre in New York, and this September my two act play Electric Serenade will be part of Theater for the New City’s Dream Up Festival in NYC’s Lower East Village.
