The "playful" in my name refers both to an attitude and profession, as I write plays (mostly comedies, mostly produced). They've been produced all around the world and, occasionally, even New York (usually Off-Off-Broadway).
Born and raised in Chicago, I've been an Upper West Sider for about 20 years. Raised relatively Jewish, I'm now a mix of Jewish-Buddhist-pantheist-atheist-hedonist-humanist. I like the concept of "soul".
I swim regularly, walk zestfully, and travel enthusiastically. I've hung out with penguins in Antarctica, wandered side streets in Transylvania, waded through flooded roads in Vietnam, been to Burning Man five times, and can also appreciate a quiet night at home with someone special. I love exploring both inner and outer worlds, and I like company as I do it.
