My origins as a writer,

while unequivocally humble, are innately tied to the theatre. My senior

year of high school, I directed and produced Stephen Schwartz’s 

Godspellwherein I revised, tailored and adapted its comedic sketches – as advised by the book writer, John-Michael Tebelak. While keeping the Biblical parables intact, it was my first true exploration in discovering my sense of humor.


That same year, as a continual Honor’s English student who wrote for the school newspaper, I enrolled in Syracuse University Project Advance (aka SUPA), in lieu of AP English. It was while surmounting that collegiate course load that I was challenged as a critical thinker — deconstructing Disneyfication, identifying Marxist panopticons, and arguing against my own beliefs, all on a daily basis. 


And it is with that formative influence I toil as a writer. 

In 2017, a monologue I wrote (entitled My First Time), was included as a part of a showcase called Firsts — produced, directed and performed by The Shrill Collective at MCS Theatre in midtown Manhattan.


In 2019, I finished my first work of fiction: a transgender adaptation of the European Cinderella; the tale of a tailor known initially as William. At 78 pages and approx. 21,000 words, it is entitled: Wilhelmina; or The Queen’s Satin Dress.


Some of my favorite authors and playwrights include: 

Madeline Miller, Meg Wolitzer, Leigh Bardugo, Will Arbery, Jeremy O. Harris, Lucas Gnath and Robert Askins

Lastly, below are some of my aesthetic and philosophical musings. If you’d like me to make you a mood board and/or discuss any of these topics, please just let me know! It would honestly make my day.
