A Brief History
After college, for nearly a decade, I was involved in writing, directing and producing radio dramas, everything from short comedy sketches to full-length plays of all genres.
While at U.C. Berkeley, I met producer Monica Sullivan, who was producing a weekly radio drama show (“Shoestring Radio Theatre”) at KALX-FM. I started submitting scripts and after hearing my first one produced, I was hooked. Over the years I became more and more involved in the all-volunteer, non-profit radio drama troupe, which began nationally syndicating its shows in 1993. I went on to write, direct and/or produce over 20 plays (30 to 90 minutes each) and 25 shorts. If you are interested in the details, you can view my complete Radio Drama Portfolio.
In early 2000, I started working for an Internet startup and no longer had time to be regularly involved in Shoestring productions. However, I did manage to find the time to produce some audio comedy with my own side troupe, Crunchy Frog Comedy.
