My young adult novel "Fans of the Impossible Life" will be coming out in Fall of 2015 from HarperCollins/Balzer+Bray. I'm represented by the amazing Brianne Johnson at Writers House.
My writing for theater has been seen in NYC at Dixon Place, Galapagos, and the SoHo Playhouse. Collaborations with puppet artist Amanda Villalobos have been presented as part of the Great Small Works Toy Theater Fest at St. Ann's Warehouse, in residence at the Henson Carriage House, and at Brooklyn Arts Exchange (BAX).
I've been a performing member of theater company Elevator Repair Service since 2002. We spent most of 2004-2012 traveling the world performing an eight hour long show called "Gatz" that uses the entire text of "The Great Gatsby." I played a secretary and I edited and wrote a lot of my book onstage in my office cubicle while the show was going on. When we performed at the Noel Coward Theatre in London the people in the top balcony could see me typing. You can read more about that here. Some other places that we have performed: Norway, Singapore, Tasmania, Lisbon, Amsterdam, Vienna, the Sydney Opera House. In Australia I held a koala. In Singapore a bird told my fortune.
I grew up in New Jersey, went to school at Sarah Lawrence College, and now live in Brooklyn with my wife and two black cats. Current interests include: angsty singing ladies, interior revolutions, and exterior adornments. Also - nostalgia as an art form. And - spiritual conspiracy theories.
