Get peeks into my upcoming work and process

Who knows, I might send you a scene from a play I’m working on, or a bit of dialogue or mechanics talk from a game. And good hell do I love talking about process, so you can expect some of that as well - including links to videos, articles, songs, and memes that are inspiring or making me think right now.
