“What ever you want to do in life, never compromise.” Mark Gatiss

We are all stories: the stories of our work, our relationships, our experience and beliefs.

Comedy & Tragedy

Personally invested in your success & happiness

This is my story.

How I got here and what I do are all part of the same tale.

Here you will find poems, plays, videos and reflections as well as the recording of Bunt Force Trauma, the story of recovery from brain injury that kicked this whole thing off.

I still perform and write, so if you have a more creative project in mind, simply give me a call.
