RECENT WORK My most recent work is Listening for Our Murderer, which depicts the relationship between two boyfriends in Brooklyn. As gentrification increases, their senses of community, race, religion, economics and class become unmoored; as marriage equality becomes a closer reality, the boys must also re-evaluate their notions of love and sexuality – especially after one is the victim of a hate crime.

I BECOME FIXATED on ideas and stories that I find funny, sad, beautiful, and/or disturbing and my way of processing them has always been mounting them in brackets made, metaphorically, of curtains and lights and pictures and scenes.

MY WORK, IN SIX WORDS: That’s Intense. But I Loved It.
