I'm a New York City-based playwright, television writer and journalist who occasionally misses my hometown New Orleans.
My current play "Ruth" was developed at The Dramatist Guild Institute. One Heart Productions presented a staged reading of "Ruth" on April 28, 2017 at Downtown Community Center (DCTV) in New York City. Ruth was also a part of the Blackboard Reading Series at the Cell Theater in New York City in 2018.
Other plays include "Negative Is Positive" (Theater for The New City). One Act Plays include "Four Men On A Train" (Harlem YMCA Little Theater) "Plum Crazy" (Musical Theater Works) "Prix Fixe" (T. Schreiber Studio) and "Nothing Ever Happens" (Theater Studios).
Other works include "City Hall" an original vignette performed at the El Portal Theater in Los Angeles as part of the ABC Entertainment Talent Showcase, "Heartburn" a teleplay that was chosen as a finalist for the ABC Entertainment/Walt Disney Studios television writing fellowship program. "Bad Terrorist" a 30-minute pilot.
I am the recipient of a 2013 New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) grant for play writing.
As a journalist I have 15 years of experience specializing in lifestyle, entertainment and breaking news. My writing has appeared in The New York Post, New York Daily News, am New York, Marie Claire, Essence, Today.com, The Hollywood Reporter, Backstage, The Cooperator, Yahoo! Billboard, In Touch, Star Magazine and The Latin Kitchen, among others.
I'm looking forward to taking the next step in my journalism career as a segment producer for Network or Cable television.
When I'm not writing I'm usually watching classic films, cooking cajun food and following the shenanigans of the New Orleans Saints.
