How did you find out about Barhoppers?
I took Doug Grissom’s Playwriting I class last semester and absolutely loved it. He told our class about Barhoppers and suggested that I submit.
What inspired you to write this play for Barhoppers?
We were given a prompt in class and the resulting play ended up being my funniest of the semester. When Doug told us about Barhoppers, I realized it could be easily adapted (and made even funnier) if it took place in a bar.
What is your most memorable bar experience?
I’m not sure I could call it memorable, but spending an entire night sake bombing with friends in New York City has been my favorite bar experience thus far.
Beer, Wine, or Whiskey?
If you could share a drink with any figure from history who would it be and why?
I’d love to drink with John Belushi because he’s probably the rowdiest of my favorite actors.
Favorite theatrical experience?
I’m such a huge Larry David fan, so seeing Fish in the Dark was a real treat.
