I am drawn to exploring what makes human beings tick. Many playwrights, textbooks, and even the incomparable Aristotle approach playwriting by beginning with plot. However, I place my initial emphasis on the development of characters. Once characters have been fully fleshed out, dialogue and actions in which those characters would naturally be engaged can more readily be developed.  An audience can watch fascinating characters doing nothing and be intrigued, but the most interesting plot will collapse if it does not have three-dimensional characters to sustain and breathe life into it. I strive to create roles that actors will be dying to sink their teeth into.
