I have news.
I got my MFA and moved back to NYC!
After three years studying with Peter Gil-Sheridan at Indiana University (IU), I got my MFA in Playwriting. I’m so grateful for my time at IU, where I grew so much as a writer, wrote a bunch of new stuff, made fabulous friends, and started my teaching career, teaching undergraduate courses in Playwriting, Musical Theatre Songwriting, and Musical Theatre Bookwriting.
Now I’m back in New York City, excited to see what the future holds.
