For years I worked as a corporate and freelance photographer/writer. In 2007 I inexplicably put down the camera—these things sometimes happen in the arts, these unexplained long-term departures. During my hiatus I dedicated myself fully to the theater: earning my MFA in playwriting, forming two theater companies, fundraising, sweeping the stage. (I co-founded Boston Public Works Theater Company and am the founding artistic director at Alley Cat Theater.) Then at a residency in Vermont in January 2017 while working on a play, just as inexplicably, I again picked up the camera and picked up where I left off.
