I write for film/tv/theater.
As a playwright, I've been produced in a number of places domestically and internationally. I've won a few awards, including the EST Next Step Fellowship, the Walter Dakin Fellowship at the Sewanee Writers Conference, the Hamptons Film Festival's screenwriting conference, the Playwrights Center/Guthrie Theater's Two-Headed challenge, and the 25th Annual Samuel French Off-Off Broadway Awards. Currently, I'm partnering with David Murrell (my frequent collaborator) and director Jo Bonney to adapt the best seller Lifespan of a Fact to the stage.
I do other things for television.
For 14 years, I've been bringing those "Oh My God" moments to Inside the Actors Studio. You know that stack of blue cards Jim Lipton reads from? I get Jim all the facts on those cards. I'm the show's chief, and only, researcher. It's a dream job, and it's kind of a funny story how I got it. I also produced the DVDs. Watch my work here.
I teach you how to write.
For six years, I've been teaching Writing on the Job - an academic and professional writing course at New York University. I've also been a consultant to a number of Fortune 500 companies on how to improve their communication. Click on consultation for more info.
I don't do this as often as I used to, but I've appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe, on a few TV shows and commercials, and in a couple of feature films. Once I was on a game show - Cash Cab. That was fun. Contact me for more information.
