My play Hoods in Collaboraction Theater's PEACEBOOK FESTIVAL premieres at the Goodman Theatre on August 26th at 3pm!

The second annual Peacebook Festival is a collection of 24 plays and devised pieces centering around bringing peace to the city of Chicago. The fest will premiere in the Goodman's Owen Theatre and then will split into three, eight-work compilations that will be performed at three different Chicago Park District locations in the fall.

I wrote and act in a serio-comedy piece titled Hoods. The play shows the "Chicago family"; ten individuals who are the personification of 10 unique neighborhoods in Chicago. They are in a family therapy session in hopes of healing their long-standing family issues. Hoods opens the festival at the Goodman on August 26 at 3pm and will also open the festival at Hamilton Park in Englewood, October 5-7th.

6/20/17: Allstate voiceover booking (with Dennis Haysbert)!

Unfortunately I can't post the audio of this radio/internet commercial due to contractual obligations but keep your ears open for this spot on your local radio stations and/or on Spotify commercial breaks. It's the one with the Allstate guy and a bratty teenager debating about FOMO. Clearly, I'm the bratty teenager.
