• “Doug has been writing plays since high school and acting since junior high. In 1988, first play 'Nicolas Brooks' had instant success by winning the Youth Division at the Spokane Civic Theatre Forum Festival in Washington State. The writing bug infected Doug and he decided to form his own little theatre group in 1989 called Tailors of the Imagination. At 17, he produced and directed an extended version of 'Nicolas Brooks' and his latest play, a retelling of Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde. In 1990, Doug's play 'A Man and His Plant' was produced at the Spokane Civic Theatre Forum Festival in the adult division. The play went on to win third place in a national contest and then was published by the Dramatic Publishing Company as a part of an anthology Short Stuff for Mature Actors. [Short Stuff: Ten- to Twenty-Minute Plays for Mature Actors, introduced and compiled by Ann McDonough (Woodstock, Illinois, U.S.A.: Dramatic Publishing Company, 1998), ISBN 0871298511, 269 pp.] Doug continued to write as he focused on his career goal of being a teacher. Since 1992, Doug has taught all grade levels from elementary school to college in various locations including Idaho, New Mexico, and South America (Chile). Currently, Doug is a full time instructor at New Mexico State University in Grants. In Grants, Doug and his wife Kim started a theatre group called the Poco Loco Players which have successfully produced five shows from 2001-2002 including three mysteries and a melodrama that Doug co-wrote with the other Poco Loco Players.” — Doug’s Bio, http://www.geocities.com/pocolocoplayers/bio.html, accessed April 2, 2003.
