Highlights of 2005

Along with receiving an MFA in musical theatre writing from the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, I performed Two Breaths about the Tsunami with Edisa at Joe's Pub and Makor in New York, drove cross country with Frank stopping along the way to visit cousins Eldy & Pricilla at the Mall of America and Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis and friends Haruno & Savak at their goat farm in Montana.

During the second half of 2005, I relocated back to Seattle to help my dad at StoneWorld LLC. I also reconnected with friends like Michelle, began work with choreographers Archana and Ying, and continued work with groups like the On Ensemble in Los Angeles, as well as individuals like performers Betsy, Marc, and Erica on projects that ranged from After-Effect about illusions to Erosion about addiction and abuse. I also touched base with long-time collaborator Eugenie on the opera Snakewoman.

Playing music with Kim, Karen, and James for the upcoming production of Archana and Ying's Becoming has reminded me of Seattle's unique vibe. Back on the West Coast, I have time to focus my energy on classical music, inquisitive writing, and acoustic ecology.
