I am a writer, performer and playwright based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I have a background in journalism and I’m often drawn to projects that require a lot of research — I wrote one show about the legal history of prostitution and another about flaws in our criminal justice system. Then again, sometimes I decide to write comedies about aliens, so you just never know.
