Author's Bio

A major up-coming work will be The Race Aid Kit, a multi-layered project aimed at addressing the national divide on Race. There is no other model of its kind in the nation. One component of the model will be performed in March, 2015, at The Dwyer, an intimate theater-gallery space located in Harlem, NY.
