5 Act Structure

I figured I should report on grad school here at Carnegie Mellon. It's great. It's tough. But it's great. I'm taking a full course load, which doesn't leave as much time for writing as one might desire (actually, it's the "free" time that gets used up.) But my classmates are phenomenal, always challenging me to do better, and our professor, Milan Stitt, is a wealth of wisdom. The best in the business. Without getting too sappy about it, I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity to be here, and I look forward to seeing how I turn out.

JOY OF COOKING in Santa Cruz

My 10-minute play, JOY OF COOKING, has been selected for the Actors Theatre of Santa Cruz "Best of the Rest" short play competition. It will receive a reading in spring 2009, along with a few other coice morsels. JOY OF COOKING is the hilarious story of a woman who must learn to cook in one night, or risk losing her marriage and maybe her sanity.
