I approach writing and text as an expanded practice and contend that music, image, movement and silence are texts which can be wrought with the same precision as a turn of phrase.

Current and recent writing projects include collaborations with archival and ecological sources, including Solar Histories and the Shape of History, collaborative writing projects with the sun; as well as this video essay, Emergence: a reflection (below).

I write performance, visual and text based poetry such as How to Place Your Roots, and Exit Wounds, a book of visual and text based poetry I am finalizing and have researched and created in dialogue with the local coroner of Macon Bibb County.

As a collaborative theatre-maker, I have authored or co-authored the scripts for  professionally produced plays; worked as a dramaturg; and devised plays with collectives.  Some examples include I Confess, Manifesting Destiny, Superjohn, Hellscreen, The Museum of Our Forgotten Selves, The Journey, Stella, and The Alchemist.


The cross-disciplinary nature of my practice has also forged interesting relationships that have application in a number of fields.  One way in which these relationships are being developed are through collaborative writing projects.

Following an invitation from Dr. Michelle LeBaron to participate in an interdisciplinary conference on Dance and Conflict Resolution at the European Graduate School in Saas Fee Switzerland, I have co-authored a chapter entitled Choreography of Negotiation in the recently published book “Choreograpy of Resolution: Conflict, Movement and Neuroscience” (American Bar Association).  Following from this, I developed a rich working partnership with another participant, Chris Honeyman, a conflict management specialist. This collaboration has spread to a variety of others involved in a large-scale international academic project known as Rethinking Negotiation Teaching.  As one result I am now a co-author of two further book chapters in “Educating Negotiators for a Connected World” (Hamline University Press) that integrate my theater experience with the conflict management field.  This led to a five year collaboration with the New York Police Department’s Hostage Negotiation Team, published by Hamline University Press in 2020.
