About

About

Daniel (he/they) is a neurodivergent writer/actor/ginger Virginian currently based out of Northern Ohio.

 

He has a special fondness for absurdism, folklore, and horror, but ultimately loves plays about honest people (or talking animals) in situations he hasn't seen before. When not gleefully giving their "soul" to artistic endeavors and projects, they legitimately enjoy long walks on the beach, a video game with a glass of wine, and biscuits.

Most recently, he has been seen as a company member (portraying Sir Francis Drake) of Sterling Renaissance Festival’s Wyldewood Players. His plays include A Pirate Carol, The Ashen Crown, and You See Them in the Corners of Your Eyes, which have been produced in camp workshops and schools across the United States. Their cosmic horror, In the Slush, was a Finalist for the 2023 Princess Grace Award and is published with Ghost Light Publications.

Daniel is an alumnus of the University of Virginia and a member of the Dramatists Guild.

In The Slush

COSMIC HORROR IDENTITY THRILLER

FINALIST - Princess Grace Award, New Dramatists, 2023

Synopsis

Newlywed Laura Beth Gardner has it all. A loving husband, a baby on the way, and a usually delightful job. But this weekend, tasked with reading through her publishing house’s slush pile, she encounters a mysterious manuscript that claims she isn’t human. That her husband isn’t who he says he is. And that she’s a vessel for her unborn child, who is actually the Second Coming of an ancient darkness that will devour the world. It has to be some sort of joke. …But what if it’s not?

 

A cosmic horror about identity, creation, and things we’ll do to realize our dreams.
