A TEXAS TRILOGY
(Aug 2014 - ReGroup Theatre)
-"These plays are really MAG-NI-FI-CENT! … My are the productions good, and the acting is superb..." - Peter Filichia (Broadway Radio)
-"If you can only see one, the best of the three is LU ANN HAMPTON LAVERTY OBERLANDER, which visits the town in 1953, 1963 and 1973...Conrad Shaw and Hamish Allan-Headley are completely believable as Lu Ann’s husbands...there is not a false note in this play." - James Thaggard

ROLLING WITH VIRGIL
(feature - in development - writer/actor)
-Rolling with Virgil is a unique and very musical new concept, combining the best parts of silent film and music videos with a classical narrative structure. It's a modern-day odyssey, a journey to get back to lost love through incredible obstacles, all inspired by and written to music by an exciting underground NYC band.
-We've shot a full scene from the script, created a full storyboard animatic, received name talent interest, and have been pushing the project forward to make the whole feature.
(series - in development - writer/actor)
-In development: a light sci-fi dramatic comedy series for television exploring the ethics of time travel with a premise along the lines of Groundhog Day + The Butterfly Effect.
(docuseries - in post production - co-creator)
-A groundbreaking documentary project exploring universal basic income (UBI) in America.
-My partner Deia Schlosberg and I conceived, fundraised, designed, and implemented America's most widespread UBI trial in history, with 21 participants receiving weekly no-strings-attached cash subsidies for two years across 10 states.
-We have filmed with the participants throughout the process, and Bootstraps will tell their stories in 2022.
