Me Stuff.

I am a mid-career playwright, director, producer, actor, and dramaturg. My play Ghosts won the Mildred and Albert Panowski Playwriting Award. A later play, Oatmeal and a Cigarette was awarded Critics' Pick at the 2008 Cincinnati Fringe and subsequently published by Broadway Play Publishing.

My most recent full-length play is Acqua Tofana, about Gironima Spana, a 16th-century Italian seer, midwife, alchemist, and professional poisoner.​ Several of my shorter plays have appeared in recent “Best of” anthologies.

In response to new playwrights colleagues asking me about my development experiences, I wrote the how-to book Workshopping the New Play: A Guide for Playwrights, Directors, and Dramaturgs (published by Rowman Littlefield).

And because I believed that Ithaca, NY, desperately needed new and exciting theatre blood, I co-founded and served as the artistic director of the Ithaca Fringe Festival (2013-2017).

I am a MacDowell Fellow; March 2023.
