What is your job on this show?
Playwright/Actor.

Where were you born? Where were you raised? Where did you go to school?
I was born in Oakland, California on the hospital naval base where my dad was stationed. When I was 2, we moved back to my parents' weird and wonderful home state of Oklahoma where I grew up. I received my B.A. in Theatre Arts from the University of Central Oklahoma and my M.F.A. in Acting from The Actors Studio Drama School at The New School.

Complete this sentence: My show is the only one in FringeNYC that...?
has Special Agent Fox Mulder appearing onstage wearing a snorkel.

In your own words, what do you think this show is about? What will audiences take away with them after seeing it?
This show is about obsession, love, authenticity, the road not taken, and pie. I believe audiences will take away a hankering for pie.

Which “S” word best describes your show: SMOOTH, SEXY, SMART, SURPRISING?
Surprising.

If you had ten million dollars that you had to spend on theatrical endeavors, how would you use the money?
I would buy a 10 million dollar octopus puppet.
