About Rick

My name is Rick W., and I was born with a love for the arts. Chicago is my home, and I have a great love for the city (even in wintertime). I have a Bachelor or Arts degree in Theater, with a focus on acting and writing. After graduating college, I spent six years doing regional theater throughout the United States.

I am a founding member of the a performing Arts Troupe (1983-1990), where I was a playwright and actor. Over my career, I have appeared in several off-Broadway plays, and I have written screenplays that have placed in the Austin contest finals and the Slamdance contest semi-finals. I have also written on assignment for several Independent Film Production companies, and I have recently completed my second novel.

For the past three years, I have taught classes in writing, at a Writers' Workshop in Winnetka, and I have served on the Board of the Chicago Screenwriters Network.

Mid-2015, I will be opening a Production company that will focus on play and film production.

I love life, and I believe that I have a gift for connecting with people.
