I am most inspired by art that veers off the “traditional” path. I am not interested in “strange” for the sake of strange, but find that what is considered “normal” in society is often not entirely truthful, or a way to disengage from complexity.
I am interested in how humans use public behavior to hide themselves or show themselves and who we are as people based on who we are around or what environment we are in.
I like coincidences. I like names that rhyme. I am forever fascinated with the rocky landscape of the history of the United States, and the rest of the world, and the rest of the universe.
I write complicated female characters. In the sense that they exist and are protagonists and are not just there to serve a purpose relating to men.
I write complicated characters in general. I like to challenge actors. People are not just one thing. They are many. All at once.
I write talking inanimate objects, and talking animals. Chairs or elephants can't talk in real life, so they definitely should onstage.
I like to tell stories that aren't easy to tell, that don't have one specific answer or goal in mind. I like to explore. I like to write about explorers both literal and figurative.
I often write non-linearly. I often write about mental illness. These two seem to relate.
As a former student of both dance and poetry, I am interested in the intersection between movement and language. I am also interested in sound.
I like collaboration. I like to be supportive of other artists.
