I have been writing plays since high school and acting since junior high. In 1988, my first play "Nicolas Brooks" had instANT success by winning the Youth Division at the Spokane Civic Theatre Forum Festival in Washington State. the writing bug infected me and I decided to form my own little Theatre group in 1989 called Tailors of the Imagination. at 17, I produced and directed an extended version of "Nicolas Brooks" called "Who Loves a Writer" as well as a retelling of Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde. In 1990, my play "a Man and His Plant" was produced at the Spokane Civic Theatre Forum Festival in the adult division. the play went on to win third place in a national contest and then was published by the Dramatic Publishing Company as a part of an anthology "Short Stuff for Mature actors." In New Mexico, my wife and I started a Theatre group called the Poco Loco Players which have successfully produced four seasons including several plays that I co-wrote with the other Poco Loco Players. My 2002 victory as a writer was being included in the Love Creek Production's play festival in New York City. (click here to see more picture) My monologue "Pearls of Wisdom" is the true story of the struggles young women face growing up in rural Idaho. another success was a 2004 midwest tour of my play "the Redneck" (renamed Operation Redneck) by the professional Theatre group Retroact Productions. I'm now involved in developing film projects as a writer and producer. With my students at NMSU-Grants, I wrote and produced a feature film (a wacky action-comedy called the Kinky Karate Girls) which has been recognized by the Independent Film Channel and the New Mexico Tromadance Festival. My short film Chihuahua Man won third in a contest in Los Angeles. With my team at NMSU-Grants, I am working on many other projects which can been seen at or on YouTube. In 2007, we created a series of DWI commercials that are airing around New Mexico on KaSa Fox. In 2008, we started a new series about War Veterans ( the series has been featured by apple iTunes and YouTube. the most successful episode has been "Saving Lives in World War II" which won an emmy award in 2009 for best advanced Media Historical Documentary (Rocky Mountain Region). the majority of my plays are available on the website and have been enjoyed by both school, community and professional groups all over the world.
