Hello. I'm Dara, a ghostwriter, playwright, and artist, living and working in Philadelphia, PA. 


I'm also the Founder, Artistic Director, and Writer of

Agile Rascal Theatre, a company that works at the intersection of arts, environmentalism and cycling. 


I’ve been studying story structure, character and narrative since my days studying film at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. I continued this pursuit through an MFA in Creative Writing at San Francisco State University and over many years as a professional freelance writer.

When not writing, I can usually be found riding my bike, engaging with my community, and enjoying nature and urban environments in just about equal measure.
