I started this blog in the spring of 2011 when my first short story was accepted. It felt imperative that I grow a place online that future editors, movie studios, and tastemakers could find me. Imperative. Ten years later, it still holds a mixture of sentimental attachment, so I update it (very) occasionally.
Over that time, I’ve sold a few pieces, wrote a spec script and a pilot. Last year I completed a second novel. But in all honesty, for a long time my process could be best described as dabbling. I’m trying to leave that behind in 2021 as a student in the VCFA low-residency MFA program, so now it’s write, write, write. What will change? TBD.
About me (he/him), I grew up in the suburbs of Toronto, then got a theater degree from MIT. I went to medical school, became a psychiatrist, and lived in NYC for a decade before returning to my hometown. I do a fair amount of improv (even through the pandemic) and am a psychiatrist and addiction medicine physician by day.
There are links to some of my publications, moanings about my creative process, and shoutouts to various productions/teachers that have helped me along the way. I am still a work in progress but should I ever arrive somewhere, consider this an inconsistent diary of the journey. Cheers!
