About

Eighth Day Arts was born in February 2013. The name comes from Thornton Wilder’s novel, “The Eighth Day,” wherein he writes: Man is not an end but a beginning. We are at the beginning of the second week. We are the children of the eighth day. The novel is my favorite of all Wilder’s works. I first read the book in the late 1970’s and knew one day I would use the title for an arts related endeavor. Here we are.

My background is in film, with experience in short films, documentaries and features. I have produced and directed for the theatre and founded the LA Shorts Fest. I am the Artistic Director of “Eighth Day Arts” and, until recently, ran a brick and mortar fair trade boutique/art gallery.

Eighth Day Arts focuses on the fun of art, and offers film screenings, play and script readings, book signings, theatre performances, poetry events, classes, seminars and more. A podcast is in the works.

The primary goal is to bring people of diverse cultures, interests and backgrounds together through art.

My personal interests include travel, writing and photography.
