    Omg some of the same talented faces! Hi John, I live in Chicago and had plays performed at Chicago Dramatists so far, But primarily working on MA in Counseling Psychology and then hopefully my Pay D at Adler. Doing work with gay kids I interview about bullying from improvised theater game which is about them bringing their non hate play to Equality House (the home painted in rainbows by anti hate groups) and performing it there. Working on creating a non profit for it as it is educational, inspiring change in social justice and it us ethnically diverse since 20 year olds are playing the kids (Why? The Midwest. Religion. And some are hustlers)’ Rewarding play. Something Orange County can handle if Indiana can. So how the he’ll are you????? I adore Chicago and how to get married to my partner when it’s legal here.
