I'm working on a new documentary theatre piece on the heroin epidemic in New Jersey (particularly interested in the Jersey Shore area). I have been meeting with folks who have been sharing stories and still am looking to meet with more folks. If you or anyone you know would be interested in talking, please reach out via messenger.

It was preparation...


A belated Valentine's Day wish for everyone... "We’re all going to die if we keep loving this way, die from isolation, loneliness, depression, abandoning each other to oppression, from lack of touch, from forgetting we are precious. We can no longer love as a secret, or a presentation, as something we prioritize, hoard for the people we know. Prioritizing ourselves in love is political strategy, is survival."…/transform-valentines-day-lesso…

We don't learn to love in a linear path, from self to family to friends to spouse, as we might have been taught. We learn to love by loving. We practice with each other, on ourselves, in all kinds of relationships.
