How has New Brunswick influenced your work?

Being born in New York and moving to the Maritimes from Los Angeles, the differences are almost too vast to speak of. Life is that much different.

What do you consider to be the highlight of your career so far?

I would like to think that I haven't reached the highlight as of yet. But there have been milestones. As an author, I would think putting one's work to live theater would be a milestone. I've been fortunate to have my work done there (the stage.)
