I've been a member of the Stage32 community for a few years now, but have not really had much of an opportunity to connect with others. During that time, I held an overnight job as a Night Auditor at a local hotel, which pretty effectively shut down my energy for the time I held that job. I'm back in the land of the day now, and I'm hoping to expand my connections with writers and producers.
I will actually be in the Los Angeles area for a week starting tomorrow. I'm going out there for an event that Screenwritingu.com is holding. A short bit about myself: I write comedic plays and screenplays for the most part. I'm working on a transgender awakening story set in Wyoming and the realm of oil/gas enterprises and a gayer version of MY FAIR LADY with an inept gay man hiring a sexual shaman to help him become a more attractive guy to the men he'd like to attract.
I hold my undergraduate degree from Dartmouth College, an MFA from NYU, and I received my Master Screenwriter Certificate plaque from screenwritingu.com in 2017. I've seen productions of my plays in Denver, Seattle, New York City, and Albany, New York and I've had readings of scripts here in Laramie as well.
One thing I'd like to try my hand at sometime is to write a thriller. I don't know if I'd be any good, but I'd still like to try someday. Also to write a coming of age novel based on a path not taken,
Acting is a second love after writing. I will be playing "Torvald" in a reading of Lucas Hnath's THE DOLL'S HOUSE PART 2 in Wyoming in November. The last role I played was "Count Vlad" in an abridged version of ANASTASIA.
One conversation-starting thing about me too: I'm an astrologer, tarot reader and a devoted pagan, honoring the mysteries and powers of nature. I'm interested in connecting with other pagans to discuss our own version of faith-based scripts that come from our unique perspective, and also to find out how others work with these different modalities in their work. It's disappointing, but oftentimes when I describe my ideas, people assume I'm talking writing horror. I get that, because there is a horror of living as a marginalized person in this culture, and much of the history of witchery is about confronting our oppressors. Spellcraft actually works, which is why witch hunts take place periodically. But there is so much more to the Craft which cultivates beauty and a joy of living. I want to see more of that.
