How did you first get involved in theatre?
My first foray into the theatre was playing my dream role of “The Baker” in Into the Woods. But when it comes to writing, the musicals Ragtime and Once on this Island primarily inspired me. I’ve spent the majority of my theatrical writing devoted to writing musicals. So much of my playwriting is influenced by music.

Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
