The Ranking for my Pilot TERRITORIO has increased on Coverfly! Check out those scores!!!
I also have advanced to the 2nd Round of Launch Pad's Pilot Competition!
This is so exciting! I've been submitting two of the pilots I've been developing this past year, and just after a week of making it discoverable, the Pilot for my Hybrid Neo-Western TV Series Territorio is ranked on THE RED LIST, as the Top 35% of Discoverable Projects on Coverfly!
Go to my Writer/Director page to learn a little more about the project!

I'm working with a few other wonderful teaching artists in a pilot program 52nd St Project has with their neighbor PS111. We're meeting with some of their 5th graders on Thursdays through March--and over the next few weeks, they will write monologues that will be performed by professional actors! I've been working with 52nd St Project for almost a decade, and being brought into this particular program has been a perfect return to teaching in person again.

Please donate, volunteer, go see shows, share it with friends! They're a wonderful orgnaization and one of my favorite theatre companies out there.

In March, I'll be teaching Screenwriting to Epic Theatre Ensemble Students. I've been a teaching artist with Epic for almost a decade, and have done everything from stage the violence in shows and teach stage combat, taught Antigone in classrooms, been an acting mentor, and performed in shows to name a few. But to be able to teach them what I've been focused on the last few years is super dreamy! More info on this down the line. Click the image above to learn more about Epic.
My collaborator Nidia Medina and I have been developing a TV series based on her play: The Triumph Of Tatty Bojangles. We've been in the application and interview process with Orchard Project's Episodic Lab since the beginning of the year, and managed to be Finalists and make Final Cuts. We love this project, and look forward to you seeing it on your TVs one day!
Had the great joy of doing a reading with my pals at Pipeline Theatre in a room full of fabulous queer theatre artists.
