Screenplays include THE BOAT (2004 Nantucket Film Festival screenplay finalist).
My theatre cartoons have been published in The Dramatist and on American Theatre’s website. Other cartoons appear on the blog Extra Criticum. The Dramatist also showed me some love with a kind profile. Still curious about me? Check out this Metropolitan Diary entry in The New York Times and an essay I wrote for the (Toronto) Globe and Mail’s Facts and Arguments page.
