PLEASE DONATE In Support of This Time's Summer Developmental Workshop and Production

Last Summer I began a new and exciting chapter in my life, developing This Time - an original contemporary musical for which I have written book, music, and lyrics - the story of a man and woman who meet, fall in love, and discover they were partners in prior lives. Bridging the gap between traditional musical theatre and modern rock musical, This Time is a romantic odyssey across five centuries and multiple lifetimes.

My production partners and I will be mounting a full developmental workshop of This Time atTheater for the New City (TNC) in the East Village this Summer, ending with performances at TNC August 20-23, August 27-30, and September 3-6. I need your help raising $35,000 by August 1, 2015 to make This Time happen.

Please visit to quickly and easily make a donation of any amount. TNC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and is co-producing the workshop and performances, so any donation you make is 100% tax deductible.

If you can assist with a donation, please be sure to

(1) enter "'This Time' Production/Black Box Studios" in the "COMPANY/TITLE OF PRODUCTION" box and

(2) send an e-mail to with your name, donation amount, and date, so we can track and appropriately recognize your contribution.

No donation is too small and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support! For more information, check out or e-mail

Hey... what happened to the penguin bloggy thing?

If you've visited my blog in the last 2 1/2 years, you may be wondering why the Antarctica blog was never finished.  I teased an exciting tale of wonder and mystery at the bottom of the World and even shared a wacky penguin video, but where, you may have asked, is the rest of it.

I must be honest: I lost my diary with all the notes from my Antarctica trip!  30 months later and a move to Connecticut later, it still has not turned up.  It was there when I wrote the prologue to the Antarctica blog and then it wasn't.

So let me sum up the Antarctica expedition this way: it was the most incredible thing I've ever done!  Since that trip, I've visited Africa (Morocco) and completed my quest to visit all seven continents.  Antarctica remains one of, if not THE, single greatest experiences of my Life.
