Some Updates!

When it rains it pours!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any updates but some good stuff has happened recently so I thought I’d share:

I am thrilled and honored to be the recipient of the 2017 Jonathan Larson Grant along with 5 other awesome writers.

I am similarly humbled to be the recipient of the 2017 Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award along with 11 other recipients.

It feels pretty nice. But these honors and career advancements come at a time when the country I live in is taking a dark U-turn toward the gates of hell. The irony of that is not lost on me. But I take it as a sign that my purpose truly is to use my art as a form of resistance against all forms of tyranny, whether it be imperialism, patriarchy, or white (House) supremacy. And so as they say in the streets … that’s what’s up!
