I'm a writer, a singer, storyteller, and a life and discovery coach.

I’m a writer, a vocal artist, and I create solo plays about mental illness, uplifting gayness, and everything in between. I love to perform as a vocal artist and storyteller. I like writing about opposing the status quo, redefining Gayness and everything in between. I’m a life and discovery coach for gay men and have three of the most adorable fur-babies! 🐶 🐱 🐈 

WHAT I’M UP TO AND WHAT YOUR PLEDGES WILL DO

The Solo Play With Song

I’m currently writing and developing a solo theatre piece called SEEN UN-HUMAN. A provocative solo play with song that thoughtfully, unapologetically and with high quirky energy, explores one gay man’s experience with mental illness through the lens of society. The goal for this work is to eventually debut it in NYC, tour throughout the U.S. and write a book of spoken word and poems from SEEN UN-HUMAN.


WITH YOUR PLEDGE, I CAN:


- Outsource a dramaturge 
-  Offset costs of hiring a director/musical director.
- Offset costs of renting rehearsal and performance venues.
- Offset costs of renting sound equipment.
- Offset costs of travel expenses.


WRITING:

I’m fascinated by and deeply interested in social constructs, identity, trauma and parlaying it all into helping gay men reclaim their humanity.

WITH YOUR PLEDGE, I CAN:

-
Outsource a proof reader and editor.
- Outsource writing coaches to help me with improving my writing for contributor submissions to online publications and for deeper impact and readership for my amazing patrons. (
I’m a provacative and creative out-of-the-box writer, and could use help with writing structure- the technical aspects of writing ✍️)


VOCAL ARTISTRY:

I’ve been professionally singing since high school. I’ve attended The American Musical and Dramatic Academy in NYC and Actors Conservatory Theater in San Francisco. My main thing was musical theater, but I’ve decided that I just didn’t want to fit into the mold of being judged, chosen or selected for work, and want to create my own work and performance opportunities. 

WITH YOUR PLEDGE, I CAN:

- Make the time and space to routinely keep up with my vocal exercises. (Vocal training is essential to my own vocal integrity)
- Create singles and music videos.
- Outsource a prominent vocal coach.
- Keep on singing!


If you like the stuff I create, and interested in experiencing my stuff, please consider supporting its creation (and creator) with a monthly pledge to my Patreon. The kind of creations I like to make costs money and time. I'd love your help so I can make more work. Check out the perks available in the column to the right for various levels of support.

Love,

Greg

PS. It would be wonderful, for someday, to meet each patron in person. Perhaps that might happen by bringing my solo show to your community or making a special trip just to hang out. The possibilities!
