Meet the Director

I'm happy to announce that after a long search, Twin Towers has a director. I'm proud to have Angela Astle on board, she brings a lot of experience and personal contacts to the show, and she has a personal connection as well; her husband and sister are both returned Peace Corps volunteers, as am I (and Jamal). Angela went to visit her sister's Peace Corps village in the Gambia, and this understanding about how Peace Corps volunteers live and readjust to life in America will be an asset to the production. Angela's father is in the armed forces, so he can speak to the issues Trevor is dealing with. And most importanly, she has a BA in theater and business, to insure that we don't go over budget and the actors all get paid. I think this is a perfect match.

Please keep checking this site if you are interested in being part of Twin Towers. We are searching for a publicist as well as many other crewmembers, and casting begins in April.

Performance Schedule


Here is a sketch I made before shooting the image for the play. W is for white, B is for black. I had to sketch it out because the idea was so complex I needed to know that it would work. This is not usually the way I shoot. For me, photography is about 'discovering beauty in unexpected places', about finding things by accident, about showing the world something I had unearthed. This way of shooting is completely different, but I have to say I enjoyed the process. While making the image in photoshop some of the elements I had in the sketch really didn't work so I changed them. But all in all, the finished product looks much like I had sketched in my mind.
We can move through live in two such ways as well, either discovering new things at random as we go, or by sketching out a rough plan and then trying to make that vision a reality. We just have to be prepared to modify our plans along the way, and not get upset with the final picture doesn't look like the sketch!

OLD Logo

Here is the old logo for the play. This one has a photrealistic gun, but I made one from scratch for the final version and worked on the background. Please comment!
