The most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, muppetational


Blogs/essays etc

For blog posts and articles and stuff like that, you can find it here on this site. I also have an occasionally-updated tinyletter mostly on media criticism. Some of the pieces you can find there are:


I've written a handful of plays, all of which you can read here!

  • Five Till Places: A roughly 30-45 minute one-act absurdist comedy about a high school theater tech booth that gets trapped in a time loop (4 women).
  • Last Page: A roughly 30-45 minute one-act absurdist comedy (see a trend?) about a superhero that visits a coffee shop, causing things to go haywire (3 women, 1 man).
  • A Long Way Down: A full-length, two-act dark comedy that is a blatantly illegal adaptation of Nick Hornby's novel A Long Way Down, so this is purely posted as a writing sample. Literally would be impossible to ever put on because again, super illegal adaptation.

I'm currently working on two different pieces at the moment, and will probably post them when they're in postable condition.

I also was a Staff Writer for Stanford's "Gaities", which is an original, full-length, student-written comedy musical that is performed in the leadup to the annual "Big Game" against our rival UC Berkeley. In particular I wrote for the 2013, 2014, and 2016 shows!


I've written a few short film scripts, mostly for a class on adaptations (so again, illegal adaptations that couldn't be made ever, so yay writing samples!)

  • A Story About You: A 15-minute adaptation of the episode A Story About You from the podcast Welcome To Night Vale.
  • Wolf At The Door: A 5-minute adaptation of the Rebecca Curtis short story Wolf At The Door.
  • Bullet In The Brain: A 5-minute adaptation of the Tobias Woolf short story Bullet In The Brain.

I also have an extremely-in-need-of-a-rewrite feature spec script (a slasher set in a college dorm) but that's nowhere near ready for public consumption.

Short Stories

Eh I'm not gonna post these right now. Maybe eventually.
