Personal Motovations

My journey as a playwright commenced in 1992 with my first work, "Male Illusions," which delved into the intricate dynamics of relationships between men and women. As my craft developed and my perspective evolved, "Male Illusions" transformed into "A Walk Along the Edge," followed by "Rachel," then "By Way of Venus," and ultimately culminated in "By Way of Love" in 2016. Each iteration of the narrative reflects my growth as a writer and explores the ever-changing landscape of human connection and love in its various forms.
