I'm a published playwright, and Cynic. I am self deprecating, and very self aware. I
write, smoke, drink, argue, and have a knack for saying the right thing at the right

I'm currently working on my new play; "20-Something" Its a mix of 8 1/2, Taxi
Driver, and Clerks. 20-Something tells the story of a writer named, Thomas. On the
day of his 25th birthday his friends promised him a night of drinking, at their favorite
watering hole. As the night progresses, him and his two best friends, two brothers;
Norman and Randal, recount favorite stories from high school, jobs, past romances,
and a suicide pact they made when they were 17, vowing to be sucessful by the
time 25 hit, to avoid "That awkward fucking moment, when you realize you never
took the time to develop a passion".

Its an angry, and passionate disection of pop culture, and growing up.

I've been trying to get this project off the ground for the past two years, and feel I've
finally got something personal to say. Hopefully by the summer it'll be done, and I
can get it performed.
