As a writer and mentor, I assist criminal defendants and their families. In 2008, I pleaded guilty to a drug conspiracy charge and spent one year at the world-famous Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn. Today, I help defendants tell their whole story the right way as they prepare for sentencing.
As an award-winning theater artist, I directed the world premiere of Billy Porter’s GHETTO SUPERSTAR at the Public Theater in New York City. Produced by George C. Wolfe, we were honored by the Drama League and GLAAD. My stage work has been featured on CBS (60 Minutes II) and NPR (All Things Considered). I also directed at City Center (NYC), Ahmanson (LA), Hartford Stage, Juilliard, LaMama, NYU, and Edinburgh. My work includes world premieres by multiple Tony, Drama Desk, Obie, Emmy, and Golden Globe winners and nominees.
My play HIT THE BODY ALARM played The Performing Garage (NYC) and earlier in the “Art of Justice” series at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice. For ten years, I assisted Broadway legend Hal Prince on new work by Stephen Sondheim, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Carol Burnett, Alfred Uhry, Jason Robert Brown, and Jim Steinman. With Mr. Prince, I worked on Broadway, at Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, Goodman Theatre and others.
