What I Want to Do: To live life to it's fullest!


 
My Page Billboard

I am a writer and musician with a lifetime of experience in theatre as well as an actor, writer & dramaturge. I just completed an MFA in Creative Writing at George Mason University in 2007 and am currently working on multiple writing projects including novels, short stories, 2 stage plays and a new collection of poetry. I post on Facebook and Open Salon I am a singer songwriter-pianist with a portfolio of my own original songs. Currently living in Chicago and loving this great city. I attend a playwright's workshop at Chicago Dramatists when I can afford it and I go to the huge public library downtown to play piano and work on new music material in their practice rooms. My goal is to get my writing published and to be read by others. My 2nd goal is to find a way to earn a living (that elusive "day job") that doesn't drive me crazy. My 3rd goal is to continue daily meditation and find inner peace and satisfaction with myself and life as it is. I can do no more. My final and most important goal is to prepare for death.
