I began writing earlier than I can remember. I would write birthday, mother and father’s day cards instead of buying them. Creative writing was my favorite time of day in school – even more so than recess or gym. Writing was something I did every spare moment. However, getting involved in sports, going to college, becoming preoccupied with work, and starting a family, writing was something I found less and less time for. After seeing a local play in 2011, I began writing again--more often than ever before. I saw every play I could and reading everything I could get my hands on from W.E.B. Dubois' The Souls of Black Folk and The Autobiography of Malcolm X to Disgraced by Ayad Akhtar. My intent as a playwright is to create stories and characters that reflect overlooked perspectives and problems in our society that, hopefully, force people to ask questions that may lead to resolutions.
