About Mel

I am an artist with a business mind.

I studied Theatre and Business Administration before attempting to obtain a Masters in Nonprofit Management. I have directed, produced, designed (SPFX and props), written and stage managed for several Chicago theatre companies. I am a published writer of short fiction and poetry. I'm the founder of a theatre company and was a banker for several years. But first and foremost, I am a storyteller.

I have been a writer for as long as I can remember. I love words and the way they ebb and flow into rhythms unique to individuals. After the death of my father, I stopped writing and lost my direction. Recently, I picked the pen back up regaining my footing and drive. And it feels amazing!
