Nathan Metcalf started writing plays when his brother approached him, needing a show for his high school competition. The show went on to win top honors. Naturally, others followed. Shortly thereafter, he was hired by the National Theatre for Children as an Artistic Associate and backup writer. Within 3 years, he had written (or co-written) 14 shows. Today he still works as a playwright and actor in the Twin Cities, with his wife, Jolene, and his labrador, Spaghetti. Nate had a different moment in the sun in 2007 when he became a one-day Jeopardy! Champion.
