I Create.

My work focuses on beliefs – why people believe the things they do. Beliefs are the basis through which people create their reality and live in society.

Understanding why people have their beliefs is integral to uncovering our common humanity. How history, personal experiences and spirituality play a role in these beliefs serve as the foundation for my books, plays and films.

I tend to use Twitter the most and Facebook the least. I’m still working out Instagram. Hope to see you soon!
