Writer’s Statement

I think laughter, more now than ever, is so critical to our well being. With so much violence and hate speech, the world can look hopeless, yet when we laugh, especially when we share laughter with someone else, it makes life the best kind of rich.

I write the kind of movies I want to see. Sometimes that is a big budget action adventure along the lines of “Indiana Jones,” other times it’s a situational comedy for the stage akin to “Noises Off.” But it always gets cheeky, no matter how serious my subject. I finally had to embrace that and I hope that more people will get to laugh through my work.
