I come from Pittsburgh, where the people are proud but not always comfortable with expressing their feelings, thoughts and / or emotions in words.
My plays draw on those moments that make up the lives I see in the day to day. The incidents and stories that often get overlooked. Personally, the most exciting, impactful and memorable times in my life are moments I never realized were important at the time – they were just moments in a life. 
I started out in the theatre as an actor. I love actors and writing for them. My plays are character driven stories with meaty and challenging roles with flawed or broken characters. Or at least, that is what I strive for.
I want my characters stories to be heard and felt by people of all walks of life. While I am very careful to not preach in my plays, I do want the audience to leave thinking…and feeling.

    Periodically I check up on what you have been doing. I’m waiting for you to stop back in town so you can autograph my copy of ‘Lions’. I am really glad to have had the chance to hang out with you; someone so passionate about an acting career and so accomplished in playwriting. I think no one else in our CCAC group has enjoyed so much success.
    I listened to your podcast about your father. I share similar sentiments about my father, and I am glad when he passed suddenly 3 years ago, he went just the same way, quick, quiet, and without suffering. Your words really resonated the feelings I continue to feel, as I still miss him terribly.
    I always say it’s the reason Peyton Manning won his second Super Bowl because not 10 minutes into the 3rd quarter of the 2016 AFC Championship game my dad’s heart stopped, then the Steelers fumbled, (not the reverse) and eventually lost the game. There was a paradigm shift in the universe in that moment and I feel it every day. Your words brought bittersweet memories back. Thanks
