I was Interviewed on a Podcast!

I got to chat about success with David Andrew Laws and Megan Greener of Dress for the Podcast you want about my idea of success and how my life is not what 12 year old me expected (shocker), it’s sorta even better. (Bigger shocker!) How cool was I that I knew the power of a vision board before vision boards were a thing?!

The Beautiful Work Challenge: On Birth

A new podcast by catalysta that helped write and produce is out now in three parts!

Earth was born of gas and dust 4.5 billion years ago – more or less. Humans made the scene 4.4998 billion years later, that’s about 200,000 years back. We’ve celebrated annual harvests some 12,000 times, started writing around 3,000 BC, got wired in 1879. A lot’s gone down in a short time – things were bound to go topsy-turvy.

Now’s the time to correct course, to align to the well-being of the planet and its inhabitants. There’s no road map, but there are plenty of promising paths. catalysta is all about promising paths.

Read about IVP's In Their Footsteps: A Play About the Women Who Served in the Vietnam War

Alison Preece of OnStage Blog about Infinite Variety's Productions' In Their Footsteps.

"Some were nurses; some were trained military; some were volunteers. They all went to Vietnam to serve their countries, and were shocked to find themselves in the middle of a war like none they’d ever heard of. They were expecting conditions comparable to the Korean War, where the battles had designated areas and the base was protected. The Viet Cong employed guerilla-style tactics, and no area was off limits to attack.

As a result, even women who volunteered with the Red Cross as part of its Supplemental Recreational Activities Overseas (S.R.A.O) program, expecting to see zero combat, found themselves in danger zones."

Leanard Jacobs writes about In Their Footsteps in the Clyde Fitch Report.

"Thousands of young American women were sent to Vietnam — at least 7,500, according to one source. Whatever the total number was, if you don’t think we talk enough about their stories, then In Their Footsteps is a play you want to know about."

The C Word World Premiere

My short play The C Word will make its premiere in NYC as part of Vulcan Theatre Company's Forge Night - An Evening of New One Act Plays.

I wrote The C Word shortly after a health scare in February 2018. The C Word follows Darcy shortly after she sees a spot on a mammogram. She contemplates how her life will change with a cancer diagnosis to a stranger she meets in a park, Ben. Darcy jumps to some extremely rash notions and impulsive changes to her life all while Ben tries to comfort her.

In Their Footsteps

37278570_2053632021378000_4413265813616721920_n.jpg

July 13-14 was the sold out run of Infinite Variety Productions' In Their Footsteps at 59E59 Theaters. Ann Kelsey and Judy Jenkins Gaudino, two of the lady's portrayed in the play about the women that served in the Vietnam war, and our biggest fans, came to see and hear their own oral histories performed. What an honor it has been to know them and to have a part in telling their stories.
