The thing is, the place was just an empty classroom, but Lola was able to make the children see so much more in their imaginations. My daughter was so completely immersed in the story that she was that she felt like she was far, far away.
I wrote and produced 40 plays for Lola's Lab. Stories took place over 1 -5 days, staging 2 acts each day.
I wrote a large amount of thematic curriculum packages, curating informational content for lessons while directing educational programs. Themes featured the cultural arts of over 90 countries, national parks, music of the last 50 years, greek mythology, recycling, space, circus, zoology, and historic women. The packages each included introductory and break out information, videos and photographs, and interactive participatory programing based in art, movement and drama.
Opening Ceremonies and Extravaganzas
In 2004 I co- wrote the opening ceremonies for VSA at the Kennedy Center, and that year I also
wrote/illustrated Waking. Waking was for an adult audiences and explored themes of introspection, purpose, faith and celestial mythology.
Books, Video, Podcasts
My first book “Zoopossible Rpyal Kingdom, (42 pgs.) was published on Amazon in 2013. The second, Super Oink, (80 pgs.) is finished, and I am currently seeking an agent.
Superoink takes readers to the county fair to the tale of a stolen pie, a super fast pig and how creativity saves the day. "Superoink" seeking a publisher.
Zoopossible: Royal Kingdom tells the tale of a selfish Princess who comes to live in a sustainable Kingdom. Published by Createspace in 2015.
Video is a format that combines my visual, written and producer brain. I’ve been working in video throughout the years, writing scripts for event intro videos, marketing and community based videos and my favorite, ultra creative fictional stories that feature colorful characters.
I've experimented with writing/ directing/ producing a podcast version of Zoopossible, adapting socially conscious elements and curriculum to suit an online audio based audience.
