From Chicago Artists Month 2015
What next? Currently, I am writing the script for a film shooting next summer in Chicago about the Mexican-American family, decay of the American Dream and good life fantasy, and queer possibility. I am also working on a solo playformance mixing autobiography and writing a novel for in independent queer press in New York City. Additional projects include performing with the Southside Ignoramus Quartet, directing the Young Fugitives' production of Cold Summer, and pursuing my Ph.D. in American Studies at New York University.
