Editor’s note: Atlanta artists face uncertainty amid Covid-19. To help us all connect, ArtsATL offers this series. In each “In Our Own Words,” an artist will share their experience, strength and hope as we all navigate a new normal.

Clearly the pandemic has put a halt to stage work and film and television work across the country and Georgia is no different. It’s pretty much shut down everything I do, so I’ve been using the downtime to write things and fix up scripts I’ve done previously.

I’m exercising – walking, biking – trying to eat correctly and basically put myself into some self-improvement work. I still practice scenes. I still record monologues for myself, and I write.

I know that the future is going to be one that evolves slowly. Of course our hopes are to go back to where we were previously, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. Doing one-act plays, doing short plays might be the wave of the future. And I think this is probably going to go into 2021, honestly. Film and TV are going to have to reorganize.
