The first full length play I wrote, Docket 32357, was completed 6 months after my stroke. I was inspired to finish it to prove to myself I could still write. It was a long but beautiful journey essential to my recovery. Later that year, the first scene of said play was made into a short film. The feeling I got watching something I wrote being filmed and acted out is something I can't yet put into words. Having one of my dreams actually come true was a bit surreal. I will just say I was all smiles. Docket 32357 is currently getting into festivals around the U.S. and I couldn't be more thrilled!

Please check out the teaser Docket 32357 You never know, there might be a showing in your state soon!

  1. Just wanted to say hi. I ran across your blog over the internet looking up information and trying to answer questions about the experience I went through with my stroke and came across this. Your blog is a breath of fresh air compared to the abundance of doom and gloom you find on the web about strokes and their effects on the lives of people who have had them. I'm glad to hear you are doing well as I have gone through a similar experience. I had a severe hemorrhagic left side CVA and my right side was completely paralyzed, I was only 33yrs old when it happened. Yet somehow I managed to make a complete and full recovery with no lingering effects in a matter of 2 months... My perspective on things and life in general has drastically changed since. There are people who have been far less fortunate than you or I after having a stroke and your story is inspirational. Good luck in all that you do.
