"I've partied with the best of them, from Studio 54 to the shores of Ibiza, from Hef's grotto to Beyonce and Jay-Z's secret moon base and now, I'm here to help the gorgeous people of metro-Phoenix get off of their couches and back on the scene!" - Parsley Periwinkle

Humor is his first language, and he is always seeking the "weird angle," and to break conventions of American theatre. He holds a BFA in Theatre from Arizona State University. In 2005 he co-founded Phoenix's Space 55 Theatre Ensemble with Shawna Franks, acting as the company's resident director and playwright. Since 2018, he has collaborated with "The Ladies," producing original immersive theatrical events presented in unconventional spaces, including a boutique hotel, an independent bookstore, and various parking lots and garages.
