Thanks for visiting my website. I've been writing plays on and off for the last 15 years. During that time, I've had 80-plus productions and staged readings of my plays in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Australia and Singapore.
I've been fortunate to win a number of national awards and contests. In the U.S., my drama, Guided Tour, garnered me the Stanley Drama Award and the Arthur W. Stone New Play Award. In 2015, The Draft, a play that explores the real-life experiences of young Americans with the military draft during the Vietnam War, was nominated for two Best New Play awards by local critics after its Boston premiere and won for Best Ensemble. I'm a two-time winner of the New Play Festival of Centre Stage-South Carolina with Guided Tour and Identity Crisis.
A video of my play, The Draft, should be available in January for purchase from the Media Education Foundation. MEF specializes in distributing educational documentary films to colleges and high schools. I've also set up a website to boost promotion of the video: www.vietnamdraftplay.com
My play, The Draft, about personal experiences with the Vietnam War draft, received a Best Ensemble in A Play award in the 2015 ArtsImpulse awards in Boston last week. The Draft also got the nod for Best New Work, but lost out to Waitress, staged by the American Repertory Theatre. It was honored, too, by the Independent Reviewers of New England (IRNE) with a Best New Play (Small Stage) nomination in their annual awards.
