The past couple months have been busy, busy, busy! In October, the staged reading of my play Everything You're Told went incredibly well, with an audience that laughed and cried and gave us some great feedback. I'm working on revising the play now.

In December, my alma mater brought me out to be a guest panelist at a Stanford Arts event for a series called "Art Is My Occupation." The students asked such compelling and thoughtful questions on how to begin making a career in the arts. I hope I told them some useful things!

Also in the last month or so, I've written a four-part essay series on privilege and the arts. The Theo Westenberger Estate is publishing the series, and the first article is out today! Check it out here: http://bit.ly/2jafj8e.
