I live and breathe stories.

I am an American playwright, filmmaker, producer, and teaching artist from Denver, Colorado. I am the co-founder, executive director, marketing director & resident playwright of Two Cent Lion, an LGBTQ+ theatre troupe based in Denver, Colorado. I currently live in London, where I am completing my Master’s in Screenwriting at Raindance Film School. My plays, films, and TV series aim to create positive queer representation by exploring the complexity (and the messiness) of human relationships.

I have written and co-authored plays that have received professional production in Denver, Phoenix, and London. Clink, Clink won 3rd Place at the Cinempress Stage Play Contest (2023), and was an official selection at the New Media Film Festival (2023 Script Competition). Yesterday/Today won the Just Write! International Playwriting Contest (2023) and was awarded "Best of Fringe" by Bucharest Inside the Beltway (2022). 

I have working relationships with Curious Theatre Company, Local Theater Company, and the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, among others.

I am the creator, editor and host of two podcasts:
