A short tale about a young Jewish girl and her family who escape the ghetto and seek refuge in the forest. Struggling to survive, their horror is compounded by what may be the girl's ultimate demise. Can she be saved by a spiritual force more powerful than we can imagine?

The Next Stop
Next up is THE NEXT STOP, written by and starring Parrish Hurley and directed by Andy Biscontini. It's currently in post production and coming to the festival circuit soon.
Winter Recap
Thanks to everyone who came out for Route 66 Rodeo's first installment of the Roadside Attractions Reading Series last December 8th, which included my short play The Gift of Bemidji.
Also in December I had the pleasure of returning to Bedford Falls for the 3rd time in It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play by Joe Landry with Cake Productions.
We were back at the Duplex and I was back in the director's chair. Thanks to all who came out to enjoy this holiday classic!
I'm excited to be riding in the TD Five Boro Bike Tour in May for the first time. 

And in October I'll be riding in my 5th BikeMSnyc 100-mile bike ride to help raise funds & awareness to get us closer to a world free of MS.
GMail Tips:
I love corralling all my emails using labels in GMail, and found this article especially helpful. It has a Google script you can copy that sets emails with certain labels to self-destruct after a set time. I've got some timed to delete after 3 days, 30 days, 1 year, etc.
Plus, did you know you can modify your GMail address to help filter emails? For example, you can add +news between your username and the @ symbol when you sign up for enewsletters and then set up your GMail filters to automatically star, delete, archive, etc. Read full details here.
