Human beings are interesting; our stories fascinating.

Love, sex, beauty, hate, laughter, betrayal, deception, conflict, creativity, power, redemption – all these things draw me to directing and writing because they are in all of us.

I want to put these stories on the screen and stage so we can see ourselves within the complex characters. So we can laugh, cry and learn. So we can take another couple of steps forward in our lives with some understanding, grace and sense of possibility.

My favorite phrase is, ”Once upon a time…”

That’s why I direct. That’s why I write.
